Advancing knowledge and action on built environment and human habitats
Welcome to CEPT Research and Development Foundation (CRDF).
CRDF is a multidisciplinary think-do-tank promoted by CEPT University. Through CRDF, University engages actively in research projects, advisory assignments and capacity-building initiatives to solve critical problems in the built environment and improve people’s quality of life in towns and cities.
In the research and consulting pursuits, our faculty members make available their academic knowledge and professional expertise to external stakeholders, including government, public sector organisations, NGOs, communities and businesses.
Engaging with government agencies on policies, processes and capacity enhancement is central to CRDF’s mission of advancing knowledge and action on built environments in Indian cities. Our interdisciplinary research that spans diverse areas from built environment and energy, urban land planning and policy processes, and urban infrastructure, to leveraging geospatial technology for decision-making is aimed at delivering tangible results with far-reaching impact.
