These documents should be drafted in close collaboration with ReNew and IITD stakeholders.
2. Track and evaluate the progress of the various research projects under way at the Centre.

Development and maintenance of a compelling website showcasing the Centre’s activities
Fostering relationships between IITD and external partners, both within India’s public and private sectors as well as with international institutions, universities, and firms
