New Delhi: The Department of Science & Technology (DST), under the Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India and Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD) have jointly invited scientists to submit research proposals in Cyber Physical Systems (CPS).
The prioritized research and innovation area for the joint research plan is CPS, concerned with software and data dedicated to complex physical systems, with the purpose of creating smarter and more user-friendly solutions for the involved societies. Examples for the sub-topics include big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive computing, cloud technologies, network security, and smart ICT solutions for urban or rural areas.
The Indian and Danish scientists will have to develop a joint research plan and the plan will be sent to both India (DST) and Denmark IFD, respectively. The research proposal must include the name of one Principal Investigator (PI) each in India and Denmark and should include how the proposed collaboration brings added value for both countries.
On the Indian side PIs and other investigators should either be scientists, researchers or faculty members regularly employed by government-recognized universities, academic institutes, national research and development laboratories or institutes. Successful projects will be funded in Denmark by IFD and in India by the Department of Science & Technology (DST) for a maximum of three years in bilateral mode.
