New Delhi: Team Sweden (Embassy of Sweden and the Swedish Trade and Invest Council - Business Sweden) and IIT Delhi discussed the current air quality situation in the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi and identified possible areas of joint intervention during a workshop organised on September 22 at the Institute.  

Participating Indian start-ups and Swedish companies showcased best practices in air quality management and discussed various aspects of poor air quality in Delhi. Different technological interventions (monitor, protect, and prevent air pollution) and various possible areas of collaboration were identified.

Plans for joint awareness campaigns across schools/education institutes and possibilities of joint R&D and co-development of technological solutions that are able to address issues at local level were discussed.

The conference also explored matchmaking of start-ups under the IIT Delhi umbrella with Swedish technology companies for accelerated commercialisation and market deployment
