The Puri Foundation for Education in India

The Puri Foundation for Education in India is the registered charitable trust responsible for running the University and Institute of Advanced Research in Gandhinagar, the capital of Gujarat.

The foundation receives around £250,000 a year from The Puri Foundation to run the institute which carries out research in a number of important areas, including biology, biotech and genetics to name just a few.

The late President of India Dr Abdul Kalam opened the centre in April 2006 along with the current President Mr Narendra Damodardas Modi who was the Chief Minster of the state of Gujarat at the time.
