Department of Science and Technology, Technology System Development Programme (TSDP) Invitation of Pre-Proposals on “Electrochemical and Optical Imaging Device Technologies”

Department of Science and Technology, Technology System Development Programme (TSDP)  Invitation of Pre-Proposals on “Electrochemical and Optical Imaging Device Technologies” The DST  is the  nodal  Government agency  for promotion  of Science & Technology  in  project  mode in  the country.   The  TDT Division  of  the  DST through  its  TSDP  has  been  supporting  Technology  Development related  projects. It  proposes  to support  projects  focusing  on  Product  development and Platform  creation  in  the areas of  ‘Electrochemical  and Optical  Imaging Device  Technologies’.   In  this connection,  a discussion meeting  cum  workshop  on  the above topics is  planned  during  29th  Feb-2nd  March at  Amrita Vishwa Vidyalaya, Coimbatore.   The DST  invites from  Researchers,  the Pre-Proposals with  clearly  identified  objectives  and well laid  out  road  map for  product  development for which  the  concept  has  already  been  demonstrated  at  the laboratory  level.  The accepted  Pre- proposals are required  to  be  presented  by  the Researchers  and  will  be discussed  by  a group of experts at  the  meeting  to  provide feedback  to  the investigators for further course  of action. The scope of the meeting includes the following and other closely allied themes:  •  Electrochemical    and  optical sensing and  bio-sensing. •  Cost effective  Medical Imaging:   Micro-modal  microscopy, Optical  tomography, Hyper spectral imaging,  Raman and MRI. •  Lab-on-a-chip,  Microfluidic  platform  for  pathogen  sensing,  fluorescence  sensing for  medical diagnostics etc., •  Instrumentation with methodology  for Surface  Plasmon resonance, Surface  Plasmon coupled Emission, fluorescence  etc., for  bio-sensing. •  Hand-held and  Bench-top Instrumentation  for  electrochemical sensing  and bio-sensing,  Wearable Bio-medical sensors and Biomedical Optical Imaging systems and associated electronics. The researcher  working  in  the areas, who  may have several interesting ideas relevant to  these applications and device  development  that  may  be  translated  into  Technology  development in  project mode may  submit preproposals for consideration  by  DST for financial support with a  value  of                Rs. 50:00 Lakh  and above. The  DST is  also willing  to  support  good  projects which  have  the  potential for commercialization,  if  they  meet the  criterions laid- down by  the DST for its Technology  System  Development Programme  (TSDP).  (For further  details  please see  the DST  web site: .  The  projects which  have  Multi-disciplinary,  Multi-institutional and has industry  partner right from  initiation  of the  project  are encouraged.  The general Information  and  the required format for submission of the  projects  under Technology  systems development  programme can be  accessed at  the above mentioned web site.  Travel support  and  local  hospitality  will  be  provided  to  the selected  participants.  The  template  of  the presentation will be communicated during second week of February. A two-page  Pre-proposal  as per the  format enclosed  may  be submitted,  through  e-mail on  or  before  10th February 2016 to: Dr. Rajeev Sharma Scientist-D &  Member Secretary, PAC on TSDP-DST Room No: 20,  Hall-C, Department of Science &  Technology  (DST), Govt.  of India,   Technology  Bhawan, New Mehrauli  Road, New  Delhi -110  016. Telephone  : 011-26602187, 26590310,   Mobile: 09971888229
