Under its Intensification of Research in High Priority Area (IRPHA) scheme, SERB had invited competitive proposals to ramp up national R&D efforts for epidemiological studies on new anti-virals, vaccines, and affordable diagnostic against COVID-19 and related respiratory viral infections.
The Intensification of Research in High Priority Areas (IRHPA) program of Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) supports proposals in high priority areas from the viewpoint of advances in fundamental science.
The project will be set up around established research groups led by a Principal Investigator (PI).
The duration of the project is normally for a period of 5 years (3 years for COVID-19).
Important Info :
Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) is an autonomous body under Department of Science and Technology (DST).
