Call for Proposals (Seed and Translational Grants)
The Tata Centre for Technology and Design at IIT Bombay invites proposals for seed and translational grants from faculty members. The Centre has interests in agriculture, disaster management, education, energy, healthcare, housing, waste management, and water: proposals therefore preferentially address the unmet needs faced by resource-constrained communities.
Seed grants are awarded to faculty members with fresh ideas, who wish to prototype products or processes, or develop a better need statement. Grants go up to Rs. 12 lakhs for a duration of one year. Several of our seed grants have ended up being developed into more comprehensive translation proposals.
Projects which have clearly established a need that has to be addressed, and that are at a relatively mature state of concept development will be considered for translational funding.
Multi-investigator proposals are encouraged. The Principal Investigator shall be responsible for the technical and managerial aspects of the project execution.
The project proposal has to be submitted in the prescribed format given by TCTD. Investigators can submit applications for more than one project. Please fill out a separate application form for each project. The forms are available below; completed applications should be sent in to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com on or before the 5th of June, 2022.
Support will be provided based on the review of project proposals submitted. The decision of TCTD in this regard will be final and binding.
Potential PIs who wish to develop their proposal ideas further should get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
In case of any queries, please write to us at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Query: TCTD-Call for Proposals”.
