R & D and IPR Cell

Research and development and Intellectual Property Right (IPR) cell is established to cater all the R & D and IP need for researchers, Innovators, students, faculties, proposed start-ups within campus and anyone who wishes to seek help in this regard.

Powers and Functions of the R & D and IPR Cell

  • To create an enabling environment within the college in order to foster a research culture as well as provide required support through research framework and guidelines.
  • To ensure high level of efficient and effective support system to facilitate faculty and researchers in their research activities.
  • Ensure publications in quality journals, indexed in Scopus/Web of Science and/or with impact factor.
  • To nurture an environment of undertaking socially useful research with potential for commercialization.
  • To promote constant awareness about IPR.
  • To engage in conduct workshops/ seminars.
  • To advice and guide students and faculty on the importance of IPR.
  • To participate in periodic meeting of faculty members for identifying patentable inventions.
  • To provide support and guidance to the students and staff in protecting their inventions and creations.
