SRISTI has signed an agreement with BIRAC-DBT ( http://www.birac.nic.in/desc_new.php?id=98) to facilitate the Innovations by students and grassroots people.
The salient features of this agreement are to expand the funnel for early stage student led ideas and innovations, sometimes only at proof of concept level, for recognition and further development in the field of medical devices, diagnostics and biotech applications for meeting unmet social needs in extremely frugal and potentially sustainable manner. BIRAC-SRISTI GYTI Awards and BIRAC-SRISTI Appreciation Awards were instituted under this Agreement.
The innovations supported under the scheme will be drawn only from the Sristi’s Techpedia/GYTI and Grassroots database of SRISTI. Students are requested to participate in this initiative of SRISTI-BIRAC by going through the details as Announced on our websites http://www.sristi.org/cms/ or http://gyti.techpedia.in/.
While engineering and technology students may visit the GYTI web site to apply for the GYTI Award, the students who are interested to reveal the science of Grassroots innovations could visit the SRISTI website for submission of their proposals. The Proposals are invited in the areas of Life science, Microbiology, Botany, Zoology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Pharmacy etc.
SRISTI INVITES PROPOSALS
SRISTI invites Proposals from Science Students of Universities and Institutions for BIRAC-SRISTI Appreciation Awards of Rs 1.00 Lakh each, to reveal the science and develop the products/proof of concept. The source of innovations for this support will be only the Sristi’s Grassroots database. Students of respective field/area (Life science, Microbiology, Botany, Zoology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Pharmacy, etc.) can participate in the SRISTI-BIRAC initiative by submitting the Proposal in the prescribed format (as per the Annexure-I), on the following topics. Mentoring Faculty of respective students can also be associated with project as supervisor.
Format of application:
Proposal should be submitted in following format (Annexure I in HTML)simple two page format more than one applicant can be given same project to generate multiple solutions for the same problem or purpose
Support of lab:
Proposals can be pursued by students in their own lab under faculty guidance or they can come to sristi and avail of its lab facilities, actual cost of consumables and minimum overhead will be chargeable to the projects out of the fellowship granted for the purpose.
Open access solution to improve the quality of life of local communities in do-it-yourself format or protected technologies which may be licensed by commercial partnership between community concerned and the commercial entity or given to small start-ups for sharing benefits with the community concerned after obtaining their prior informed consent in the case of unique knowledge.
3-4 months or longer as the case may be but not more than one year.
Please send PDF file of duly complete project proposal by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or apply on line
