India and the United States are building a comprehensive roadmap for partnership in crucial areas of mutual interest while emphasizing the importance of leveraging complementary strengths and addressing critical challenges.

In alignment with the recent U.S.-India initiative on Critical and Emerging Technology (CET), to strengthen links and enhance technology cooperation between the innovation ecosystems of both nations, the United States–India Science & Technology Endowment Fund (USISTEF) announces a special call on "Critical and Emerging Technology: Quantum Technologies and Artificial Intelligence for Transforming Lives".


Essential Considerations : The mandate of USISTEF is "commercializing technologies for societal impact*." In line with this, preference will be given to:

  • Technologies demonstrating advanced levels of innovation.
  • Technologies having higher commercialization potential or technology readiness levels (TRL).
  • Breakthrough technologies that address critical societal challenges.

Note: In order to quantify the societal impact, the applications must include estimates of the potential reduction in direct social (government and philanthropic) and consumer commercial costs associated with the application of the new technologies in relation to the existing technology and practices.
