Canada-India Innovation Summit

Canada-India Innovation Summit organized by IC-IMPACTS and the Ministry of Science and Technology, India, held on December 12, 2018 in New Delhi. The joint IC-IMPACTS and DST Call for Proposals under which the awards were made was launched in mid-2018 to address growing fire problems in India and Canada. Prof. Umesh Kumar Sharma (IIT Roorkee, India) and Prof. Mark Green (Queen’s University, Canada) were awarded the project on “Fire performance of aged reinforced concrete structures”. This will aim to design new reinforced concrete structures for better fire performance and to develop suitable fire-resistant repair strategies for corroded and aged existing structures.
