The Centre proposes to work in collaboration with various governmental, non-governmental and academic institutions in pursuit of its objectives. In particular, liaison would be actively sought with various renowned educational institutions within the state of West Bengal ( such as University of Calcutta, Presidency University, Jadavpur University etc.), within India (Punjabi University, Patiala, National Forensic Science University, Gandhinagar, Govt Institute of Forensic Science, Nagpur, Dr. H S Gour Central University, Sagar, Bundelkhand University, Jhansi, Banaras Hindu University, Jharkhand Raksha Shakti University, Ranchi, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi etc.) as well as beyond the country (University of Granada, Spain; Towson University, USA; Nottingham Trent University, UK; Angila Ruskin University, UK and others). Central/State Government organizations such as the Department of Science & Technology (DST), Directorate of Forensic Science Services (DFSS), Central/State Forensic Science Laboratories, Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Bureau of Police Research & Development (BPR&D), University Grants Commission (UGC), West Bengal Council of Science & Technology (WBCOST) etc. would be approached for securing funding for studies which will be focused on various forensic applications and would play a crucial role in criminal justice system. Specifically for studies and research involving population variations prevalent in the various states of India, sponsorship may be sought for from the respective state governments and related departments. For studies involving forensic applications of private sponsorship may also be explored. Various organizations might also be approached in this regard for funding of projects, dissemination seminars and conferences. The Centre would also like to develop focused courses including courses delivered in distance education mode, offered to candidates from outside the university, in order to raise the funds necessary for its various activities. State-sponsored schemes such as the Scheme for Promotion of Academic and Research Collaboration would also be given due consideration as potential sources of necessary funds.. At this stage, the Centre does not seek any direct financial support from the university, other than permission to use existing infrastructure and human resources including working hours of the faculty and staff involved.
