Program: Canada-India Collaborative Research Projects
Deadline: June 01, 2014
Description: The India-Canada Centre for Innovative Multidisciplinary Partnerships to Accelerate Community Transformation and Sustainability (IC-IMPACTS) has recently launched its call for proposals for collaborative research projects between Canada and India. Canadian researchers and students, eligible for funding through the Tri-Agency Granting Councils of Canada, are invited to submit proposals for multi-year projects to conduct research jointly with Indian researchers in one of the four main areas of focus of IC-IMPACTS: • Safe and Sustainable Infrastructure  Condition Assessment and Structural Health Monitoring  Repair and Rehabilitation  Sustainable and Low Carbon Materials for Repair and Replacement Processes • Integrated Water Management  Water Quality Monitoring and Sensor Development  Water and Wastewater Treatment Technologies  New Alternative Power Generation Technologies to support water quality monitoring and wastewater treatment in rural and remote locations • Public Health  Point of care technologies focusing on detection, monitoring, screening and management of infectious diseases (including water-borne and water-associated disease) with impact in Canadian and Indian communities;  Development and evaluation of mobile health technologies that aim to prevent infectious disease and improve health outcomes; and,  Application of strategies to prevent infectious diseases and improve health outcomes in the primary health care setting, including the delivery to, and improvement of, maternal and child health. • Sociological, Interdisciplinary and Cross-Thematic Research  Research into approaches or frameworks for successful application and community adoption of new technologies in remote and rural contexts;  Sensor and monitoring technologies that bridge any two or more of IC-IMPACTS core infrastructure, water and public health themes;  Research into successful building of community based health awareness that will support technologies developed in the foci of IC-IMPACTS Public Health and Water Management themes. The projects selected would receive up to $400,000 over a maximum of three years. A significant portion of the budget is expected to be directed to training of HQP. Funding can only support Canadian researchers and students. There is a requirement for having a meaningful partnership established with an Indian researcher or research team in academia or industry. Interested researchers must submit a letter of intent summarizing the proposed project to the Centre which will evaluate submissions every two months. External Submission Deadline: Applications will be accepted at any time.
