**Empowering Girls to Reduce the Gender Gap in IT/ITES Sectors in south Asia Region: Training and e-content Development Programmes**Through these activities, we wish to contribute to filling the gender gap with the support of Asi@Connect. Further, the proposed project will create an ecosystem of collaborative learning and education by connecting people with cultural diversities and traditions. Since most of the activities are planned in online and virtual mode, it is possible to achieve the targeted numbers.

**Robust and Secure Transmission of 3D-Mesh Models using Steganography and Multi-Secret Sharing Schemes in Cloud Manufacturing Environment**Main objectives of the project under DST-JSPS scheme are (1) Design of a robust and secure Watermarking ( Steganography ) Algorithm for 3D-Mesh Models. (2) Design of a 2-layer privacy preserving and robust secret sharing system for 3D mesh model sharing.
