Dissemination of information and creating awareness through substantive interactions between Indian and American scientists and researchers from academia, laboratories and industry with the explicit aim to develop sustained linkages. The proposals should to be designed around a theme of common interest that has a high potential for generating follow-up activities.
The proposals are peer reviewed both in India and the United States. The final shortlisting takes into consideration several factors in addition to peer review in India and U.S., such as encouraging new groups as well as topics, background of Indian and U.S. workshop coordinators as well as proposed speakers, perceived advantage(s) for both Indian and U.S. sides, potential for developing mutually advantageous collaboration(s), etc. The process is highly competitive and partial support is provided only to a very small number of workshops due to availability of limited funds.
Proposal should be submitted online at https://ws.iusstf.org
