Philosophy: NEAR

Novel
Provide new fundamental insights or bring about new engineering techniques that are not incremental. Novel research explores unusual and new approahces to tackle a problem.
Extensible
Discovered techniques and methods are not limited to a single problem. Extenible research aims to establish approaches that could be employed to solve various inter- and cross-disciplinary problems.
Applied
Solve specific and practical problems. Applied research furnishes a platform to solve scientific problems or develop new technologies.
Rigorous
Systematic investigation of phenomena and techniques using analytical, computational, or statistical experimental methods.
