‘Electronics Project Proposal System (e-PPS) launched by Ministry of Communication and IT
The Ministry of Communications and IT has launched the `Electronics Project Proposal System (e-PPS), developed by the Department of Electronics and Information Technology, through the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC).
What is e-PPS?
The Electronic Project Proposal System (e-PPS) is a web-based system that covers the complete life-cycle of funding of R&D projects, starting from online submission of project proposals for funds, to monitoring and management of funded projects. It supports the following processes:
- • Online submission of project proposals
- • Evaluation of proposals by experts
- • Project recommendations
- • Project Monitoring
This system will replace the current manual procedure of project funding wherein the Project Investigators (PI) submit hard copies of R&D proposals, which are presented to a Working Group and based on the recommendations of the Working Group the proposals are further processed in DeitY. It would cut down the total processing time of proposals and facilitate easy dissemination of project information.
