Z. H. Sholapurwala Award For Fusion Research


Shri. Z. H. Sholapurwala, Managing Director of ZEONICS SYSTECH Defence & Aerospace  Engineers Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore has initiated two sets of awards for Poster presentation for outstanding works on engineering aspects of Fusion science & Technology done in India.


The Idea of the award is to kindle young generation to pick up work in Fusion Research which will be very useful in future. The TWO first & TWO second prizes for the award will carry Certificate of merit & a prize of Rs. 5,000/- & Rs. 2,500/- respectively. The awards will be given every year, beginning from year 2007. Details will be given in the annual Plasma conference announcement.


There is NO age limit for the award. It is open for participants (Only Indian nationals) from all R&D Institutions / Universities situated in India.


There is no need for applying specifically for the award. The awards will be given on the basis of the posters evaluated at the time of the conference.


Only posters presented at the conference will be considered for the award. The primary author or one of the co-authers WILL have to be present at the poster during the session. Please note that unattended posters WILL NOT be considered for the award.


Winner of these awards will have to become a member of PSSI if he/she is not already a  member.
