- The ten domains that represent the most important areas for the country along with their coordinating institutes are:
- Healthcare Technology
- Computer Technology
- Advance Materials
- Water Resources
- Sustainable Habitat
- Security and Defense
- Manufacturing Technology
- Nano-technology Hardware

- The scheme was released in 2015 by Ministry of Human Resource Development.
- The principal motto remains the same for each domain: (a) to create an education policy for inculcating scientific temperament and innovation skill, and (b) to develop the research roadmap for technology preparedness.
