2. Problem Statement The energy derived from coal in India is about twice that of energy derived from oil. As coal is mined, there is always a risk of fire hazard at these coal mining sites. Hydraulic fluids are widely used in mining machineries. These hydraulic fluids are combustible and are used to transmit power and motion. Pressurized hydraulic fluids present a considerable fire hazard where ignition source is present. Mixing of hydraulic fluid with coal increases the risk of fire hazard in the mines. In view of the above, fire resistant characteristics of hydraulic fluids (Flame propagation, Spray Ignition, Auto-ignition Temperature etc.) needs to be experimentally studied under the simulated conditions. Data of experimental studies needs to be analyzed theoretically to assess the fire risk and to suggest preventive actions. 3. Sample Data Required, if yes, please describe: Experimental data on the fire resistant characteristics of different types of commercially available hydraulic fluids will be required for the theoretical risk assessment. 4.

2. Problem Statement Govt Offices and Research Institute networks are at continuous risk of target base cyber attacks, such as phishing, dangerous exploits, advanced Threats like sophisticated malware and zero-day threats. Such attacks are risk to organisation for their privacy and integrity of data and knowledge base To combat these Zero day attack or Advance Threat many security vendors have solutions such as Advance threat prevention/protection such as sandboxing which scans the files coming to network combines hardware-level inspection and OS-level sandboxing to prevent infection from the most exploits, malwares, zero-day and targeted attacks entering the networks These solutions are mostly based on Cloud-based Service or highly expensive On-premise appliances based solution. It’s not the best practice to scan Government data for Zero day attack or Advance Threat on a third party cloud as files are uploaded and downloaded back and forth to vendors cloud for sandboxing .This raise the issues of data privacy and integrity as we are using cloud services of private vendors Therefore a Cost effective On-Cloud (Privately owned by government) solution for Zero-Day Attack Protection for advanced Persistent Threat/ Advance threat prevention must be designed so the government data can be sandboxed on government owned private cloud itself for data as well as network security and can be widely used among different government sectors. 3.

2. Problem Statement More often research problems in Indian R&D institutions are initiated based on top down instructions/directions that may or may not has relevance in terms of science, demand, resource availability as because technology developer and the actors associated with the life cycle works independently. The evolutionary model should ensure the marriage of Techno-Social System (Technology plus actors association) and technological regime (scientific rule sets plus resource constraints). In order to do such assessments for any new technologies developed in CSIR institutions, for that matter in all R&D institutions, does not have in-house trained resources. Preparation of new technology related plans, data collection, data representation, mapping to the socio-economical policies and regularities considering all kinds of effects, including second order effects, needs a software tools with certain degree of customization. The proposed software should be web enabled, data could be collected, represented, analyzed online and results could be shared among all the actors in technology/product life cycle so that product/technology development and deployment shall be assessed and managed in accordance with social aims and expectations. 3. Sample Data Required, if yes, please describe: Students may be allowed prepare some sample data that could be imagined for a specific product as a case study.

2. Problem Statement The cultivation of medicinal and aromatic crops can help in doubling the farm income. However, the growth of this agriculture sector requires intensive knowledge dissemination and hand holding of the farmers at various stages. CSIR – CIMAP is a premier research laboratory of CSIR, which is involved in multidisciplinary high quality research in agricultural, biological and chemical sciences and extending technologies and services to the farmers, entrepreneurs and industries of medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs). This smartphone app developed should aim to bridge the knowledge GAP between the farmers, entrepreneurs, industries and scientific fraternity in the areas of agriculture, processing and market availability for fuelling the growth of medicinal and aroma industry and rural employment. This app should enable the user to capture the geo coded medicinal and aromatic plant related data to be uploaded in the central server, which, in turn can be used by the subject matter specialist (scientist) to provide suitable advisory on near real time basis. The app should also provide a buyer/seller corner with a moderator to provide a virtual platform for the buyers and sellers. It would help in removing the intermediaries and in turn increase the profitability to the farmer and industry. The app should have feature to use the market intelligence data from the database, APIs of the market data available (open source or subscription based) on medicinal and aromatic crops to be made available to the farmers, entrepreneurs and industries. 3.

2. Problem Statement Corrosion is a worldwide problem which causes billions of dollar damage every year. Progress in corrosion sciences has helped in development of new materials and coatings which can withstand corrosion for years. However, corrosion mechanisms under extreme conditions (such as high/low temperature and pressure) are yet to be understood due to limitation of experimental procedures under extreme conditions. Nuclear, aerospace, gas/oil, and chemical industries are major areas affected by such type of corrosion. Computational methods can be really helpful for this kind of problem. Using computational procedures, one can simulate various types of extreme conditions, for example, high/low temperature and pressure. A combination of quantum chemical and molecular dynamic methods can give full insight of corrosion mechanism at atomistic level and rate of growth of corrosion under extreme conditions. The work plan is divided as follow: 1) Determining mechanism of corrosion under extreme conditions 2) Investigation of growth of corrosion nuclei 3) Finding the factors affecting corrosion rate 4) Suggesting methods to reduce corrosion 3. Sample Data Required, if yes, please describe: Yes. Data is required to validate findings. This data can be collected from available literature. 4.

Every citizen of the country visit a doctor or hospital in his lifetime for different health-related reasons In order to treat the patient doctors prescribes drug which may be generic or unique which is purchased from a medical shop. It is often seen that patient has to visit several medical shops to fetch the prescribed medicine as he is unaware of different options for a drug salt available to him. Therefore an application can developed wherein the prescription from a doctor/hospital is digitalized and directly transferred to patient or caretaker who may have an app to assess the options and availability of the drug in the vicinity/ city. This may require linking all brand names for a drug/ or it salt in a database which may be available to the doctor and the user. Simultaneously this database may be linked with availability of such drugs at different medical shops (based on the licenses issued by drug controller) which can be identified by a map. Due to large volume of data, initially a sample size can be determined and taken to calculate the match Sample Data Required, if yes, please describe: Yes Name of CSIR Lab : CSIR – Central Drug Research Institute Nodal Person and Contact Details (Name, Designation, Mobile No. and Email): Dr. Anand Kulkarni, Senior Scientist, CSIR-CDRI Phone: 0522-2772459 Mob: 09451316745 Fax: 0522-2771941 E-mail: anand_kulkarni@cdri.res.in
