An MHRD arranged meeting with representatives of other Ministries for IMPRINT-Healthcare domain was held on 24-08-2016 during 3:00 – 4:00 PM at the Senate Room, IIT Delhi. Professor Partha Pratim Chakrabarti, Director, IIT Kharagpur chaired this meeting.
The aim of this meeting was to explore partial or full support of proposals of this domain to complement the MHRD support. After the presentation made on behalf of the Domain Expert Committee, initial interest in certain proposals from certain Ministry was noted. More from them are expected in coming days. It was also decided that the proposals would be taken to other Ministries who could not make it to the meeting. This includes Ministries who had not signed the MoU but might find the proposals of interest to them. It was suggested that a login might be provided to the Ministry representatives to access the proposals from IMPRINT portal.
The earlier scheduled Apex Committee Meeting of August 08, 2016 is postponed to
second week of September (tentative) 28th Sept., 2016. This meeting will take final decision on all proposals, following which communication will be made to respective Principal Investigators.
