A New Climate Created

The Tata Trust founded the - 'Tata Institute of Fundamental Research' in 1945. The
establishment of the Institute was mainly due to the initiative of Bhabha. The Bombay government and the Government of India gave financial support to the Institute. Bhabha was appointed its first Director, and he assumed theresponsibility of shaping the Institute. India thus took the first step on the journey of nuclearscience.

The Institute first commenced its work in the rented premises at Peddar Road. Later it moved to the extension at the Yatch Club.It is now situated in abeautifully proportioned building.

Research work in pure mathematics, th6oretical and applied physics, computer
technology and geophysics was under- taken at the Institute. The study of the principles of atomic explosion, the production of isotopes and the purification of uranium formed part of the work of the Institute. Thus Bhabha created an intellectual environment in India. He was successful in practicing what he had learnt at Cambridge and Paris.

The Tata Institute of Fundamental Research is an outcome of the discussion that Bhabha had with the industrialist J. R. D. Tata, and the far-sighted decision of the Tata Trust to support Bhabha's Project. The hills of Trombay have today blossomed into a fine research complex. The Institute is one of the world's top research centers in nuclear research. It enjoys a great reputation and can be compared with any research institute in
developed countries. Thanks to the guidance and tireless efforts of Homi Bhabha the Institute is indeed a symbol of scientific tradition in India. It is Bhabha's contribution to the country's advancement of science and technology.
