DST invites proposals for tech based solution to fight COVID-19 pandemic

Department of Science & Technology (DST) has invited proposals from Indian companies for technology based solution to fight COVID-19 pandemic. This was stated by DST Secretary Ashutosh Sharma in New Delhi yesterday.

He said the proposal may include technologically innovative solutions like low-cost masks, cost-effective scanning devices, technologies for sanitisation of large areas as well as for contactless entry, rapid diagnostic kits and oxygenators, and ventilators. Mr Sharma said the DST is looking at low-cost masks which can capture virus from the air and absorb respiratory droplets and cost-effective thermal scanning.

He said the DST is also looking at bioinformatics and surveillance, rapid and accurate diagnosis kit, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things (IOT) solution for contact-less entry, and low cost and portable oxygenators and ventilators. The proposals have to be submitted on or before March 27.

Technology Development Board (TDB), a body under the Department of Science & Technology, provides financial assistance by means of soft loans or grant in exceptional cases, for encouraging the commercial application of indigenously developed technology and for adapting imported technology to wider domestic application.
