Call for Proposal for TIH-IoT Technology Development Program 2022 (2) | Applications invited for “Aarohan” – TIH-IoT Seed Support Program 2022 | Applications invited for TIH-IoT CHANAKYA Fellowship Program 2022-2023 (3) | Results of TIH-IoT Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) Program | Shortlisted Startups/Projects for AYANSH TIH-IoT Start-Ups and Spin-Offs Program 2022

About the program

Comprehensive and Holistic Advancement of National Knowledge Yield and Analytics (CHANAKYA) is an initiative under the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) with a focus on human resources development. TIH-IoT CHANAKYA Group (UG, PG & Ph.D.) Fellowships are primarily aimed at encouraging in-depth analysis and enrich knowledge in CPS, creating new scientific knowledge/ technology solutions and solving problems of industry using CPS. This program provides an opportunity for faculty to form a group of students from various academic levels (UG, PG, PhD) to work on a project in the areas of IoT. The project is proposed by the faculty and the students are a part of that team.

Guidelines for Group Formation

  • Faculty mentor/supervisor should apply on behalf of the group/team.
  • Faculty mentor/supervisor should form a team to work on the proposed project
  • The team may comprise Undergraduate (UG), Postgraduate (PG) and Doctoral (PhD) students.
  • The group must consist of two to five students (minimum one student from PG or PhD, maximum three students from UG, two from PG and one from PhD students)
  • In case the faculty mentor/supervisor would like to create a provision for a PhD student who is yet to be admitted by the Institute, the faculty mentor/supervisor may express interest through the form and share the details of the student after the admission in the current academic year.

Project Areas

Project proposals must be in the broad area of IoT and IoE and its applications, including, but not limited to:

Application Areas Technology Areas
Agriculture Sensors
Healthcare Network and communication
Industrial IoT Cloud Computing
Security Systems Secured Edge Computing
Smart Education Smart Actuator System
Smart Cities Software-based projects (IoT Platform and applications)
Other relevant areas Security
