Who we Are


Important Update

On January 15, 2019, during the IYPT 2019 launch and COP+24 closure event at Raman Science Centre, Nagpur, we had announced that in mid-2019, Centre of Excellence for United Nations Global Goals (CEUN) will be setup under Indian Astrobiology Research Foundation (IARF).

We are glad to announce that the inauguration ceremony of CEUN will take place on July 21, 2019 at Nehru Centre, Mumbai. The event will be graced by law-makers, government officials, educators, activists and students.

Please note, that RIO & COP programs and all other UN related initiatives will henceforth be conducted under IARF while the ongoing IYPT 2019 India Program will be the last program to be conducted under IARC Centre for United Nations.

From December 2019, the entity IARC Centre for United Nations will cease to exist and any and all programs will be moved to IARF Centre of Excellence for United Nations Global Goals.

The agenda remains the same; it is aligned with United Nations General Assembly declaration A/RES/66/288 – The Future We Want and A/RES/70/1 – Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

We request individuals and institutes to be patient with us as there might be some website issues as we move to the new domain iarf.res.in in the coming months.
