It provides opportunities by facilitating the protection of intellectual properties created by the faculties/students through their research pursuit. The cell actively works on activities related to evaluation and filling of patents, copyrights and design. The Institute has an array of technologies / IPR developed through Research and Development work and the cell is responsible for assessing commercial potential of the technology, identifying the market avenues and delivering the benefits of research to industry and society. We provide information about the different opportunities for Industries to collaborate and associate with us either through a technology transfer, sponsored research project or through a consulting project. We invite you to explore the technologies and benefit by collaborating with us.
