Deadline: 31 May 2019
IC-IMPACTS and the Department of Science & Technology (DST) are inviting researchers to submit proposals for projects that can be completed in two years (or less) and that focus on Cyber Physical Systems to Support Green Buildings in Smart Cities.
- Development of Sensors, Cyber-Physical Interfaces and Solutions for:
- Monitoring Structural Performance of Buildings for Safety, Reduced Life Cycle Costs, and Efficient Asset Management.
- Building Disaster Management during Fire, Earthquakes, etc. to Improve Occupant Survivability.
- Enhancing Thermal, Acoustical, and Lighting Comfort in Buildings Monitoring of Volatile Organic Compounds in Air, Human-Generated Aerosols, and Aerosol Transport.
- Energy Reduction, Net Zero Energy, and Carbon Neutrality Reduced Water Usage, Water Harvesting, and On-Site Treatment.
- Demonstration of Technologies developed in Part A in Buildings in India and Canada.
- Technology demonstrations should rank high on the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) Scale and enable the dream of building Smart and Sustainable Buildings. Central to the successful execution of the proposed project will be demonstrating a scalable technology that can be developed as a commercially viable option for Indian and Canadian companies.
- All Canadian researchers eligible to receive funding from IC-IMPACTS and tricouncil agencies in Canada are eligible to apply as Principal Investigators from Canada along with an eligible Indian Principal Investigator.
- All Indian researchers generally eligible to apply for DST funding opportunities are eligible to apply as Principal Investigators from India.
Key Criteria For a Successful Application:
- Successful applications will be relevant to Indian and Canadian ecosystems and conducive to commercialization, particularly in evolving cities in India and Canada. Successful applications will also include:
- Strong potential to scale up research and build rapid demonstration capabilities.
- Availability of strong industry partnership and/or city government (municipal, local administrative bodies) to assist with commercialization of the project. Please submit a letter of support from the industry/local body partner with details of their potential cash-funding commitment.
- Achievable research-based deployment at a suitable location in India, within the two years of the project life cycle. (July 2019–June 2021)
- Provide training opportunities for Highly Qualified Professionals (HQP), particularly master’s and doctoral students as well as postdoctoral fellows.
