VIT
SPONSORED RESEARCH

VIT University committed to provide excellence in fundamental, applied research as well as development of innovative technologies for the future. Within a short span of time it has executed many major R&D projects and consultancy services to Government agencies, public and private sector, Industries and international institution. VIT's research strength lies in the strength of our Faculty, Research Scholar, Students in addition to extensive modern facilities and collaboration with leading academic and research organization within and outside the country.

The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) serves as the coordinating office for externally funded research and sponsored projects at VIT. The goal of the OSP is to assist faculty and professional research staff in their efforts to secure and ensure proper stewardship of external funding.

Office will provide Information regarding funding agency, forms, and thrust areas

Also Office will review, and provide necessary guidance to improve the proposal in line with the requirements of funding agency/industries.

Project Guidelines

  • Project responsibility: Sponsored research projects allow for new resources to be created in the Institute. These projects are headed by a Principal Investigator (PI), and should have Co-Principal Investigators (co-PIs)/administrative PI (to operate the project, in case PI is out of station) and the deliverables are the responsibility of the PIs. The Institute provides the PIs necessary support.
  • For each sponsored project, the entire expenditure for the operation of the project is required to be met out of funds provided by the sponsoring agency. The responsibility for operation of the project lies with the PI.
  • Preparation and Submission of the Proposal: The project proposal should be formulated according to the format prescribed by the concerned funding Agency. The format is available at the respective website of each Funding Agency.
Project proposal forms for some funding agencies
  • While making an estimate of the funds required for a project, the following budget heads should be taken into account:
      (a) Salary of Project Staff including PhD scholars
      (b) Equipment
      (c) Consumables
      (d) Travel (domestic, international)
      (e) Contingency
      (f) Overheads (@20% of project cost)
  • Overheads: Overheads are calculated @20% of the total project cost.
  • In International project:
    • Funds are received in foreign currency;
    • The research collaboration of VIT with the other party/funding agency should be in conformity with the laws of both the Countries and/or International laws as the case may be.
  • Sponsored project refers to one in which the PI does not charge honoraria. For a project sponsored by a government agency, no honorarium in any form can be claimed. Amount may be used by the PIs as approved in the respective budget head by the funding agency.
  • The proposal should be submitted to the Director: Sponsored Research (after getting it forwarded by the Dean of the School/Director of the Center) for signature. Forwarding is required to ensure that sufficient resources are available, and the project can be executed.
  • A proposal that satisfies all the conditions, particularly of the overheads, will be approved immediately. Any deviation from the norms (e.g. reduction of overhead) will have to be discussed and explicitly approved.
  • The Office will make a suitable record of the proposal, and then forward to the Registrar for forwarding the proposal to the concerned agency along with the Institute's cover letter. Alternatively, it may be given to the PI for forwarding it to the agency.
  • IPR issue: All IPR related issues are agreed between the Institute and the funding agency. Preferably, IPR will be jointly shared by VIT and the funding agency.
  • Function of the Office of the Sponsored Research: The Office acts as a liaison between the Institute and funding agency to undertake sponsored projects.
  • After completion of the project, final report should be submitted to the funding agency, a copy of which is given to the Director's office for records.
  • Final report along with utilization certificate and any unspent amount in the project account is sent to the funding agency.
