Our Vision and Mission



 I           Introduction

           Research and Development Cell (R&D) of S.S.I.P.M.T. ,Raipur (C.G.)  supports activities aimed at developing and integrating technologies to evolve technology systems both in the emerging  areas and in traditional sectors/areas. Feasibility of fresh ideas/ concepts is assessed for their potential conversion into useful technology/product. Applications of R&D for socio-economic benefits is consciously promoted.


II         Objectives

            The primary objective of the cell is to facilitate and support development of products or techniques/technology aimed at specific end use. The R&D cell stresses on clearly identifying the needs for development of the technology so that the developmental effort could be useful to the students. It envisages active user involvement and association in the development effort. The intention is that the products/technologies developed become useful for the benefit of the people at large. The specific objectives of the cell are to develop and integrate technologies following a holistic approach in identified areas;

·         Promote application of modern/advanced technologies to socio-economic problem solving;

·         Promote modernization of traditional technologies, tools and skills;

·         Facilitate enhancing quality and performance of the traditional/non-traditional items;

·         Encourage developments in application  of R&D activities; and

·         Promote activities aimed at improving technology, technique, material, methods and other appropriate activities conducive for development of technology status in identified areas.

III     Technology Qualifiers’ Criteria

The Proposal to qualify consideration under the R&D Programme should meet one or more of the following criteria. The technology should be based on established R&D outcome/ results


Conforming to national/ international specifications

Potentially useful, demand driven and required by other agencies and users

A development of technology for multiple applications

An adaptation of existing technology for its applications other than originally intended

Meeting a critical national need (present/ future) and strengthening technological capabilities for the same

An application of advanced science and technology with a promise of giving competitive solutions


IV        Spectrum of Activities Qualified for Support

                Under the Programme, primarily those Projects/ Activities are supported for which "proof of concept” has already been established. The Proposals aimed at applied R&D are encouraged. Proposals involving basic/ exploratory research are not considered under this Programme. Specifically, following activities are supported under the Programme:


Ø  Applied Research and  Analysis

Ø  Development and Engineering (D&E)


·         Application oriented Research, Design and Development (RD&D) having Production Potential

·         Prototype Development of Product/ System/ Services/ Software Development (new, up gradation of the existing, field trials and demonstration)

·         Process Development (new, up-scaling of the existing, field trials and demonstration)

·         Data Generation and Feasibility Study

·         Provision for Production Facility on a limited scale for a specific Technology Segment to enable the Technology to become competitive 

·         Sophisticated Equipment and Technology based Job-Shops for cost-effective Fabrication Techniques

·         Scientific Knowledge leading to future Technology Development

·         Technological Capability Development


V         Who can submit?

             Project Proposals can be submitted for financial support by scientists/engineers/technologists working in academic institutions/registered societies/R&D institutions/laboratories having adequate infrastructure/facilities to carry out technology development work. The Programme encourages multi-disciplinary

              Proposals envisaging network/collaboration of various Organizations having diverse expertise and facilities for synergistic implementation of the Projects. Participation of industry is important.

              Project Proposals are also welcome from Industry having DSIR recognized R&D Laboratories either alone or in collaboration with academic/R&D Institutions.


VI            Niche Areas

               Some of the typical areas in which Proposals can be submitted are listed below:

·         Embedded System and Robotics

·         Waste Utilization and Management

·         Public Health and Safety

·         Engineering Techniques for Rejuvenation of Traditional Crafts

·         Alternate Fuels, Fuel Conservation, Efficient Utilization of Fuels

·         Platform Technologies for a Range of  Applications


                The above list is not exhaustive and Proposals in other areas are equally welcome if the activity is perceived to be useful by R&D for technology advancement in the country and is not being taken up under any other major R&D programme of the Government of India.
