Welcome

The Tata-Cornell Institute for Agriculture and Nutrition (TCI) is a long-term research initiative focused on solving problems of poverty, malnutrition, and rural development in India.

We were established in 2013 with a generous gift from the Tata Trusts to conduct cross-disciplinary research, and to bring together the technical capacity of Cornell graduate student researchers with the on-the-ground know-how of academic and non-governmental partner organizations in India. We also provide thought-leadership and engage multiple stakeholders at Cornell, in India, and across the globe on food policy and the agriculture-nutrition nexus. Learn more.
