The research proposals in the domain of Nanoscience will be encouraged along the lines of application areas that are both cutting-edge globally, and relevant nationally – from the perspectives of Security, Healthcare, Agriculture, Pedagogy, Environment and Energy (‘SHAPE’). The broad project objectives should concentrate on a set of clear, measurable and visible deliverables, based on the proof of concept already established by the PI. The proposal should focus on the research that can be translated into visible and commercially viable deliverables by indicating the current and projected Technology Readiness Level (TRL).

Priority Areas

  • Nanoscience and technology for emerging electronics, photonics and heterogenous nano systems.
  • Nanoscience and technology for Security, Healthcare, Energy and Environment.
