The Tata-Cornell Institute for Agriculture and Nutrition (TCI) is a unique collaboration of faculty, staff, and graduate and undergraduate student researchers from a wide variety of disciplines and expertise.

In today’s development environment, multidisciplinary research and integrated approaches are often called for yet rarely tried or successfully implemented. TCI offers a space where soil scientists, climate specialists, engineers, economists, nutritionists, animal scientists, sociologists and more can learn from each other, share their research approaches and methodologies, and expand their perspective on the complex nexus of agriculture, nutrition and development.

Together, with the support of our partner institutions and through intensive fieldwork and rigorous data analysis, the TCI team is building the evidence base for improved agriculture and nutrition policies in India.
