A field trip to main Scientific and Technical Information Center (STIC) library and museum, 400 Dulany Street, Alexandria, Virginia was made during the said deputation and also updated knowledge through this deputation in areas of filing of National as well as International Patents, protection of know-how, protection of right of trademark etc. Dr. Sharma participated in the workshops namely “Waste recycling and Management”; “Polymeric Sensors”; “Communication Skills”; “Dimensions of Nanotechnology Science, Technology and Society”; as well as in National and International Conferences on “Biofuels”, National Symposium on“Vacuum Electronic Devices Applications (VEDA)” and National Seminar on“Multifunctional Nano-materials, Nano-structures and applications”. He is an associate member of the Institution of Engineers (India). Have active participation in the academic activities of the Institution of Engineers (India). Dr. Sharma has published several papers in refereed International and National Journals as well as in conferences of repute. He has significantly contributed in evolving, developing and execution of programmes of Department of Science & Technology on “ microwave tea drying in Tea Estates of Assam in collaboration with industry”; “Sea-water desalination technology using brackish water at Ramnathapurm District of TamilNadu”; “Design and Development of 42 GHz, 200 Kw Long Pulse Gyrotron”; Commissioning of SOP Plant in Gujarat, Development of Platform Technologies including Optical Sensors, Ceramic Membrane Technologies, Swachchh Bharat Mission (Waste Management Programme), Make in India (Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMT), Electrochemical and Optical Imaging Devices (EOD) etc.. At present he is involved in ICPS programme of DST, which is mainly dealing with (i) e-Governance initiatives of DST (e-Office & e-PMU implementation) and (ii) R&D Activities related to ICPS Programmesuch asInterdisciplinary Cyber Physical Systems Research (ICPSR), Data Science Research (DSR), Internet of Things Research (IoTR), Cyber Security Research (CSR), Indian Heritage in Digital Space (IHDS), Epidemiology data & Analytics. The Union Cabinet in its meeting held on 6th December, 2018 has approved the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) of the Department of Science & Technology (DST). The Mission have four major activities i.e.1. Technology Development, 2. Human Resource & Skill Development (including development of CPS technology application tools for education at elementary and high school level), 3. Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Start-Up Ecosystem and 4. International Collaborations. The Mission (NM-ICPS) targets the establishment of:

  • 15 Technology Innovation Hubs (TIH) to focus on generation of new knowledge through basic and applied research in areas that is mandated to them
  • 6 Application Innovation Hubs to carryout translational research and work with Line Departments to develop prototypes, product development and implementations.
  • 4 Technology Translation Research Parks (TTRP) with a focus to deliver products/ technology ready for deployment or commercialization, picking up from any of the previous technology readiness levels.
