The Office of Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India is facilitating Industry Research & Development Fellowship Programme (IRDFP) 2022 by the Department of Science and Technology, GOI, and the India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA).
The fellowship will enhance the skills of the selected fellows and will be of mutual benefit to both the industry and academic partners. Researchers placed in or collaborating with the industry will have the opportunity to gain a working knowledge of relevant business drivers and will gain from the industry’s established contacts.
The up-skilling and industry exposure provided to academic researchers through the DST-IESA Industry-Academia Fellowship Programme will prepare them for a career in industry and maximise the impact of the training received by these researchers so far. For faculty researchers, it is expected that their fellowship will help seed subsequent industry collaborations and shape the direction of their research going forward.
The program aims at encouraging recent PhDs with an appreciable track record in the field of clean energy to pursue research with the industry as a career by providing the fellowship for 12 months. The program also drives research collaboration, translation, and commercialisation of outcomes across a range of industry settings. Awards under this program are made to academic researchers wishing to work on industry-informed research problems that are of relevance to India through the temporary placement of an industry partner.
