Technology Innovation Hub of IIT-Delhi & TCS Foundation join to fund projects on ‘Robotics for Impact’


The Office of Principal Scientific Adviser is facilitating ‘Robotics for Impact’ a joint call by Digital Impact Square (DISQ), TCS Foundation, and I-Hub Foundation for Cobotics (IHFC), Technology Innovation Hub of IIT-Delhi.

A confluence of emerging technologies across AI, computer vision, sensing, algorithms, advanced materials, and computing has led to an unprecedented and enterprising attempt to integrate robotics into the real world. There is a growing realization that robotics will find new applications across a wide range of problems where human engagement is either risky or our effectiveness can be enhanced significantly by working alongside a robot/cobot.

This initiative is looking for teams of Young Innovators with an entrepreneurial bent of mind, who want to turn an idea or a concept into a successful social enterprise. They should be willing to commit for the next 12-18 months to further their cause in the area of Robotics. An early-stage start-up, which is keen on growing and scaling its innovation will also be a perfect fit for the program.

This call invites innovators, researchers, and entrepreneurs from across the country who are currently working on robotics to address a social challenge or national priority, such as agriculture defence, healthcare, and industry 4.0 and beyond. 

Eligibility Criteria:

•    Applicants must be below 27 years of age and have Indian nationality.
