Indian Neutrino Observatory (INO) ia a proposed 250-million-dollar underground laboratory, for studying atmospheric neutrinos, which are produced when cosmic rays smash into the upper atmosphere. The project is expecgted to provide a precise of measurement of neutrino mixing parameters.

The project is a multi-institute collaboration and one of the biggest experimental particle physics projects undertaken in India.

It is undertaken in participation with seven firms including Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Mumbai, Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc), Chennai, Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP), Kolkata, Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC), Kolkata, Harish Chandra Research Institute (HRI), Allahabad and Institute of Physics (IOP), Bhubaneswar.
