The IMPRINT Approach
Competent leadership and team for each domain
A lead institution has been assigned to each domain and a select team chosen from all the participating institutions is working on each domain.
Call for proposals
To promote and support translation of innovative ideas and knowledge, into deployable technology within a definite time frame.
Consultation with industry & stakeholders
Existing centres of excellence worldwide are consulted as part of the groundwork for preparing the roadmap.
Policy recommendations, that factor in the current status, define where we want to get and detail how to get there, are finalized.
A workshop to launch the initiative was held at IIT Kanpur on 11 May 2015 (Technology Day).
Public discussion forum
Available data and expert knowledge form the basis to discuss, debate, deliberate and arrive at initial decisions.
Status definition and benchmarking
The current status for each domain is described and the benchmarks for where we want to reach are decided.
Challenges & roadmaps
The big challenges are identified and a roadmap to meet them prepared.
