Sports & Management Research Institute (SMRI) is the topmost Sports Management and Sports Engineering Research Institute in India, working to make India a sports superpower. We strongly believe that advanced protective gears are a must to make sports safer. The fourth edition of NATIONAL SPORTS ENGINEERING PRODUCT DESIGN CONTEST (DESI 2020) aims to engage and inspire sports-loving students and public with engineering acumen to dream, design, to develop low-cost desi Sporting Machines to make India Sports Superpower and to develop advanced protective gears. The selected ideas of the previous contests are going through the development stage.
SMRI invites sports loving students and public with engineering acumen to participate in DESI 2018 with innovative, low cost DESI sporting machine designs or prototype or final product. The product should be a low cost one. It is not compulsory that the product is new to the world. You can copy the model of an existing product, but the improved product should be ‘economical’ to our sports ecosystem. Improvement in existing design, innovation to reduce the production cost etc. will also be considered.
