Happy New Year! We could launch this simpleton website in the beginning of the new year! We are little behind the target we had set for ourselves in the run up to the 17th Nov., 2013 workshop. The end-semester examination and various evaluations started soon after. And it took some time.

The webpages contain all relevant information e.g. IIT Kharagpur presentation slides, all videos, a summary of the workshop. We may add more information based on the feedback.

We expect to finish the concept note for the perusal of the ministry coming week. Sincere thanks to all members of the team for their contributions. We have forty three Expression of Interests till date.

Shall keep all stakeholders updated through this blog (and email). We are looking forward to at least one collaborative engagement, if not more, with every expert in the first round. It is great to note that some of the activities have already started with whatever resource available at either end.

Thank you and warm regards

IIT Kharagpur Coordinating Team
