LIST OF INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS

Benchmarking-Technology Upgradation of Ethiopian Tanning Sector

Ministry of Trade and Industry (MOTI) of Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) had enrolled the services of the CSIR-Central Leather Research Institute (CLRI) by invitation for the Bench Marking Program aimed at the Technology Upgradation of selected seven Ethiopian tanneries. CSIR-CLRI has taken up the bench marking program with the primary objective of transforming the Ethiopian tanning sector through capacity building to enable them to produce finished leathers for International market in competitive manner by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of these units through productivity enhancement. The project work was carried out for a period of one year in two phases of six months each between 2010 and 2011. Dr Madhan had been associated as one of the lead personnel in planning and execution of the project. 

Twinning Programme for Leather Industry Development Institute (LIDI), Ethiopia under the leadership of CSIR-CLRI

The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia is aiming for a giant leap in leather and leather products sectors in line with the national vision. Leather Industry Development Institute (LIDI) has been established by the Govt. of Ethiopia primarily to serve the leather and leather products sectors. In order to contribute to the realization of the national vision, LIDI needs to undergo a major transformation of becoming a globally competitive centre of excellence in the field of leather. The TWINNING project is structured, planned and carried out taking into account the principal objective of transforming LIDI. The ultimate transformation would enhance LIDI’s capability to offer all the needed services and support for the whole leather value chain.  Project was executed in two phases between 2011 and 2014 and between 2015 and 2017. Dr. Madhan had been associated as one of the lead personnel in planning and execution of the project. Dr Madhan is coordinating the extension of Phase II Twinning activities from Jan 2019 to Aug 2020, wherein the primary focus is on the technology transfer to LIDI and Ethiopian Leather Sector. 

Kenyan Leather Industry Development Programme

Had successfully lead the completion of a project under the Kenyan Leather Industry Development Programme between April and May 2017. As a part of this project Hides & Skins Quality Improvement Programme, a critical intervention to provide on the job training for flayers, raw material traders and vetirnary personnel for enhance the leather value chain in Kenya. Through a training of trainers programme more than 100 personnel in the hide and skin have been trained. This programme had created a good impact for the people managing hides and skins in Kenya. Also a Workshop on Cleaner & Efficient Leather Manufacturing were successfully conducted for the personnel of Kenyan tanners and Kenyan Industrial Research & Development Institute (KIRDI).

Twinning Programme for Metals Industry Development Institute (MIDI), Ethiopia and CSIR

In order to enhance the capability of Metals Industry Development Institute (MIDI) of Ethiopia, a Twinning arrangement was created between MIDI and CSIR. More than 50 activties have been identified as a part of MIDI Twinning projeect to be undertaken by 5 CSIR laboratories viz., CSIR-NML, CSIR-CMERI, CSIR-CEERI, CSIR-CLRI and CSIR-CSIO with about 600 man-months interventions starting from April 2018. Activities of CSIR-CLRI is coordinated by Dr Madhan.

PROFESSIONAL PUBLIC OUTREACH EXPERIENCE

  • Coordinated the flood relief measures of CSIR in Chennai and Cuddalore during Dec 2015.
  • In Association with King Institute of Preventive Medicine and Research, had supported Sri Ramakrishna Math for the treatment of chronic wounds of Leprosy Cured but Deformed Personnels (LCDPs). More than 50 LCDPs have been cured of chronic wounds by the use of collagen-based scaffolds developed by CSIR-CLRI. CSIR-Central Leather Research Institute (CLRI) in Association with Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai, and Saksham, Nagpur jointly conducted a National Awareness Convention on LEPROSY on 20th August 2016 at Triple Helix Auditorium, CSIR-CLRI and I was the organizing convener from CSIR-CLRI. This convention was instrumental for strengthening of programmes on leprosy by various governmental organizations.
  • In the capacity of Secretary and Vice-President of CLRI staff club-initiated Yoga Programme for the welfare of staff and students of CSIR-CLRI
