- Applied Materials Chemistry Laboratory for Energy & Nano-electronics (CLEAN)
Research and develop new materials for various electronics and renewable energy applications
Our strong academic partnerships with IIT Madras, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, CECRI and IISc span a broad range of areas from life sciences, AI & Big Data, high-performance computing, flexible electronics, energy storage, specialty coatings and materials engineering.
Leveraging India Start-Up Ecosystem
To accelerate innovations in the growing startup ecosystem in India, we launched the Applied Startup Technology & Research Accelerator (ASTRA) program to collaborate with startups, our customers, supply chain, and co-investors across leading financial venture capital firms.
Applied Ventures, LLC, the venture arm of Applied Materials, has also partnered with Endiya Partners to launch Frontier-Tech Ignite (X) Program (FTIX). The FTIX Program aims to identify early-stage, high potential startups that address the local Indian and global needs.
CULTURE OF INCLUSION
We are home to the Women's Professional Development Network (WPDN), an Employee Resource Group organized by our women employees. Additionally, we strive to hire from diverse talent streams, including Persons with Disabilities (PwD) and LGBTQ. We have a Culture of Inclusion (COI) council that supports various initiatives to mitigate biases and sensitize employees, enabling an inclusive workplace.
