Date: 8 – 12 June 2015Venue: Centre for MEMS & Micro-Fluidics
While finding engineers and machinists with micro-manufacturing skills, there is definitely a skill gap in micro-manufacturing throughout the world. It is a global issue. Research work in the field of MEMS and Microfluidics also get delayed due to the lack of manpower with the knowledge and skills in the area of Micro-manufacturing. Since the investment cost for micro-machining processes and maintenance cost of clean room facilities are very expensive, only very few Institutions like IITs have the full-pledged facilities for micro-machining technology. We have also developed very important micro fabrication facilities at this centre under various sponsored projects. Participating in this internship will surely be a very good opportunity.
HTIC is conducting the 4th International Fellowship on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) from 28th July to 2nd August, 2014. We would like to invite participation from faculty and students of your organisation for this fellowship program.
Healthcare Technology Innovation Centre (HTIC) of IIT Madras is an R&D centre established through a joint initiative of IIT Madras and Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India. Since its inception in 2011, HTIC has evolved into a unique and leading med-tech innovation ecosystem in the country bringing together more than 20 medical institutions, industry, government agencies, collaborating with HTIC in developing affordable healthcare technologies for unmet clinical needs. HTIC’s technologies are reaching the field, touching lives, enabling business and benefiting society. A video summary of HTIC is available at
Going forward, we envision HTIC becoming a national asset in affordable healthcare technology innovation of global standards and creating impact in healthcare.
HTIC runs an annual innovation fellowship programme aimed at creating innovators and innovations in healthcare technology to address growing healthcare needs of India. The 18 months fellowship programme is designed for interested candidates from diverse background, such as engineering, medicine, business administration, public health, and social sciences, both fresh graduates and ones with work experience.
Interested candidates may submit their applications online at the link given below on or before 09 December 2013. For more details regarding the project, you may contact: Dr. Nithin V. George, Assistant Professor| Electrical Engineering ,Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar, Email: email@example.com
Health Technology Assessment (HTA), as you may know, is a multi-disciplinary field of policy analysis that examines the medical, economic, social and ethical implications of the incremental value, diffusion and use of a medical technology in healthcare. This program will be very helpful for the biomedical engineers also as it would help them to know about the scientific tools and techniques for technology assessment, legal and regulatory dimensions in use and uptake of health technologies, how to integrate medical technologies in healthcare institutions apart from understanding and assessing clinical epidemiology questions through systematic reviews and critical appraisal of clinical trials.
Experienced international and national faculty have agreed to participate and share their expertise during this week long international fellowship program. People from organizations like WHO Country Office for India, NHSRC, QCI are also coming for this fellowship program.
