Initiatives 2021-2022

INITIATIVEDESCRIPTION
FB Academy – YouTube Live Complimentary SessionsThroughout 2020-2021 season, Formula Bharat partnered with multiple educators around the world to provide relevant Formula Student content via our YouTube Channel. We plan on continuing this initiative into this season as well
Standardized ESO TrainingsA common feedback we have received from EV teams is the difficulty of sourcing an High-Voltage Safety trainer for the ESO training requirements. Formula Bharat is partnering with two education platforms to provide this training virtually. Our aim is to release the offerings later in May.
Accumulator Pre-Tech InspectionRegistered teams at Formula Bharat 2022 on-site event will have the opportunity to undergo an optional Accumulator Pre-Tech anytime between September and December 2021. Teams will pick their date of choice and an EV inspector will perform an inspection as per the event checklist at the team’s shop. This offering will be made for domestic teams (i.e. teams within India) only at this point. While this inspection will not replace the Accumulator inspection (and other tech inspections) at the competition, the objective for this pre-tech is to reduce tech inspection timelines at the competition and ensure the team’s vehicle preparedness for the same.
FS Alumni NetworkAlumni play an important role in the successful transitions between an outgoing and incoming team, and form a resource network as mentors. Formula Bharat will commit to building an Alumni network that would mentor new and existing teams within Formula Student in India.
Students ConclaveThis initiative was proposed by Claude Rouelle as an opportunity to engage discussion between students teams. Our upcoming initiatives include interactions with Monash Motorsport and EESC-USP Brasil.
Humans of Formula BharatFollowing the trend created originally by Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York, Formula Bharat will be launching ‘Humans of Formula Bharat’, an initiative that will strengthen the Formula Student community through sharing stories of its participants, advisors, alumni and volunteers.
Jobs PortalCuriosum Tech has been working to create a jobs portal specifically open towards the participants within its events. More details to be shared later in the year.
