Indo-German Science & Technology Centre (IGSTC) was established by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Germany to foster innovation through Indo-German R&D networking including industrial research partnership in PPP mode.

IGSTC has become an important and visible pillar of German-Indian cooperation. Funded topics are focused around engineering and natural sciences.

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Department of Science and Technology (DST) of the Indian Ministry of Science and Technology (MST) provide up to € 4 million each year to support research projects. The strategic alignment of the IGSTC is set out by a 10-member Governing Board with representatives from politics, academia and industry.

 

Mandate: 

  • Facilitating and promoting Indo‐German bilateral collaborations in basic and applied science, research and technology

  • Encouraging public-private partnerships (PPP) to foster elements of innovation and industrial application and cultivating a culture of cooperation between science and industry.

  • Nurturing contacts between young and mid-career scientists and technologists to develop a sense of mutual trust, partnership/leadership and entrepreneurship.

Project:

Development and evaluation of automated sensors for a highly-efficient nutrition management system in indoor vertical farming.

Vertical farming can make an important contribution to feed the growing global population especially in regions where the climatic conditions have significant restrictions on crop production. It is the practice of growing farm produce in vertical stacked layers with the help of soilless, hydroponic or aeroponic growing system. Vertical farms can be established in towns, cities, desert and degraded lands for growing high values nutritious vegetables and fruits inside protected structures.

 

Nutritional management through fertigation is the basic requirement in vertical farming as the plants are grown in inert media. Major and micronutrient management is the major task for successful vertical farming. Sensors for precise measurement, control and supply of nutrition to the plants will be used for detection of macronutrients, EC and pH for fertigation management.
