A unique feature of ARCI's mandate relates to the fact that application oriented R&D is carried out and is industry centric. To ensure that multi-disciplinary inputs can be readily harnessed for any of its targeted development efforts, ARCI has formed Centres of Excellence (COEs) in many generic thrust areas related to materials and materials processing, like nanomaterials, ceramics, engineered coatings, fuel cells, carbon materials, sol-gel coatings, laser materials processing, solar energy materials and automotive energy materials. Each of these COEs has been involved in the development of advanced materials-based technologies pertaining to their core expertise.

ARCI has been undertaking numerous sponsored projects with a variety of government agencies to develop specific products and/or associated technologies, besides carrying out contract research for both foreign and Indian companies. ARCI has also been carrying out basic R&D work, especially in collaboration with renowned institutes/laboratories worldwide.

ARCI also provides testing and production characterization, consultancy, training as well as literature and patent search in areas of core competence.

ARCI has transferred technologies to more than 40 companies and developed about 200 technological solutions for industrial and strategic sectors.
