Vice Chancellor’s Message
Universities are knowledge hubs that are capable of conducting cutting-edge, multidisciplinary scientific research. Collaborations with universities are also worth investing in the expansion of the enterprise and in the economic development of the country. CMR at the Eastern University, Sri Lanka has multidisciplinary academic expertise. The Center will provide an excellent forum for local industries and communities to work with the CMR academic staff to explore new product formulations or to find solutions for current industrial or community problems. We encourage industries, communities and researchers to come forward and create research collaborations with CMR to build a new culture of research which supports the needs of the community and industry.
