Funding Opportunities through I-STEM
The people of India and specially from the scientific community are required to become the torch bearers for the needy researchers/start-ups. Also it is needed to help the I-STEM team in listing the R&D resources which are in nearby regions/labs/departments/institution and not listed to the portal or if any custodian has not taken care of sharing his/her equipment, then it is necessary to make him/her aware that the public funded resources must be listed and shared with internal and external users.
The I-STEM Web Portal: a National Portal that is the gateway for researchers to locate the specific facility(ies) they need for their R&D work and identify the one that is either located closest to them or available the soonest.
To protect the IP involved in building the I-STEM Portal, a provisional patent application entitled, "A method and process for efficient use of geographically dispersed resources", has been filed with the Indian Patent Office.
