What We Do

Research

Research in the infra sector would involve investigations across the past, present and future. For the past, research would enable unveiling the successes and failures of plans, policies and programmes, learnings from the experiences. For the present, research would focus on the impediments and obstacles vis-à-vis ongoing activities and suggest remedial measures. For the future, research would focus on emergent technologies and processes available for practical implementation across sectors.

Knowledge

Practical knowledge on experiences and best practices rests with different players in the infrastructure chain viz. Consultants, Developers, Contractors, Lawyers, Financiers, O&M Operators, NGOs, Regulators, Bureaucracy and Think-tanks. This would encompass both domestic and international players. The knowledge data-bank resident in TIF and various experts associated with TIF should be such that it can be easily accessed to contribute to a better understanding of the dynamics of different sectors and the interplays within and without.

Capacity building

This would embrace the set of instrumentalities for knowledge-sharing and training to raise the bar
in the management of various public and private utilities and their governance. Various capacity building programmes would be targeted at Civil Servants overseeing infra
projects, Managers running utilities and Developers of infrastructure projects. The effort will be to specifically target budding managers and young civil servants concomitant with developing strong industry-academia linkages.

In The Media

 Our experts are sought out regularly for their expertise across media outlets. Their opinion is informed, independent and insightful. Here is a snapshot of the think tank’s contributions across print, digital and on-ground events.
