Since its inception in the year 2000, IUSSTF has played a pivotal role in catalyzing strategic partnerships in science, technology and innovation between India and the United States. IUSSTF has provided a platform to thousands of Indian and American scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and students to collaborate and enable the creation of sustainable and vibrant linkages between the two nations, as well as build long-term Indo-American science and technology relationships.
The vision and mission of SPARK is to create a virtual-seamless network of IUSSTF stakeholders across India and the United States. This unique platform will enable Members to establish new connections, explore new opportunities, have creative discussions about topical issues, and build a committed transatlantic grid of scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs. At the same time, it will allow IUSSTF to re-establish and re-affirm our ties with our valued stakeholders/patrons
