IC-IMPACTS has awarded a new Innovative Demonstration Initiatives (IDI) project in the deployment-ready stage of development to Manzoor A Shah of University of Kashmir and DamaseKhasa of the University Laval, Quebec, Canada. 

According to a KU statement, the IC-IMPACTS IDI projects aim to improve the health, safety, and prosperity of communities in both nations through the introduction of new technologies in Canada and India. Goals of the IDI range from encouraging technology transfer and knowledge through Canada-India research collaborations, fostering bilateral trade development between nations, and demonstrating the effectiveness of innovative technologies in the Canadian and Indian markets. 

Applicants from Canada and India submitted during the call for proposals and after a rigorous review process, the top four projects were selected, which includes the one proposed by Shah with Khasa to demonstrate testing and upscaling phytoremediation technology in real-world conditions on four sites—two in Canada and two in India—contaminated by heavy metals.
