An outreach program "Research trends in Multifunctional and Hybrid Nanomaterials (CRMN 2018)" on 21st June, 2018 was organized by S.N.Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata in collaboration Kazi Nazrul University, Asansol, WB to mark the celebration of 125 th Birth Anniversary of Prof. Satyendra Nath Bose . Multifunctionality of Hybrid Nanomaterials is a matter of intense discussion and enormous imagination, nowadays. Coexistence of diversified physical properties in Nanomaterials would help miniaturization of devices and enhance functionality. Functional materials exploit desired coupling among multiple variables to yield several functionalities, viz. integrated structural, electromagnetic, thermal,sensing and actuation, energy harvesting/storage, selfhealing capability, biodegradability etc. Recently, investigations of Material Properties, Device Performance and New Application Concepts have become a subject of great research interest and close scrutiny. Production of multi-purpose devices, performing different and complementary operations, is one of the aspirations of diversified industries, such as, electronics technology, energy generation and storage, healthcare, automotive engineering, environmental monitoring, web-based information technology etc. Interdisciplinary research from both engineering and science disciplines have been recognized in forwarding and accelerating such scientific breakthrough.
