Serving the Humankind by Delivering Scientific Knowledge
Our logo depicts a golden spiral that grows to form an abstraction of an 'i'. The size of this spiral increases but its shape remains the same with each successive curve. The 'i' at the pinnacle depicts 'IISER the institution'. It also connotes 'individuals', implying that IISER is bound to serve people of the nation by contributing to education and research. The petals of the logo represent the national flower, lotus (Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn).
A golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral whose growth factor is the golden ratio (1.618). This ratio can be observed in numerous naturally occurring patterns and structures. The golden spiral represents that IISER is close to nature and for nature. As the simple spiral contains deep mathematical meaning, IISER will always be larger than any of its definitions.
The blue color connotes trust, confidence, wisdom, and intelligence. It also indicates continuous growth of high ideals.
Overall, our logo stands for a science research institution that is stable, multi-faceted and growth-oriented.
