Patent Information Centre
Intellectual Property/Patent Information Centre
India has always been an innovative society but much of the intellectual property (IP) created remains unprotected both on account of lack of awareness and the perception that IP protection is either not required or that the process to obtain it is unnecessarily complicated. Many IP holders are unaware of the benefits of IP rights or of their own capabilities to create IP assets or the value of their ideas. They are often discouraged by the complexities of the process of creating defendable IP rights.
The National Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy is launched by Indian Government for the future roadmap for IPRs in India. The Policy recognises the abundance of creative and innovative energies that flow in India and the need to tap into and channelize these energies towards a better and brighter future for all. Beside of good IP regime and Frugal Innovations, Indian citizen’s performances in protecting & commercialization of IP are not satisfactory. Indian position in the Global Innovation Index is just satisfactory out of Countries of world.
The 21st century belongs to the knowledge era and is driven by the knowledge economy. It is strong need to improve the awareness about the benefits of IPRs and their value to the rights-holders and the public/masses. Such steps will build an atmosphere where creativity and innovation are encouraged in public and private sectors, R&D centres, industry and academia, leading to generation of protectable IP that can be commercialized and make a road map for sustainable development of India/ Aatmnirbhar Bharat.
The Mangalayatan University had initiated research activities since its inception with the help of qualified faculty members and ambitious students. The University aspires to conduct R&D in diverse areas aiming to cover the full spectrum, from fundamental and theoretical studies, through research of relevance to business and industry with practice-based studies in Science, Engineering, Management, and allied areas.
The focus of the University in promoting interdisciplinary research is to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines to identify challenges and deliver practical solutions. University also guides and encourages the faculty members to propose new research projects and ideas to carry out innovative research, apply for externally funded research projects to different national and international funding agencies, and also in helping the researchers in filing the Intellectual Properties (IPs) generated and protecting their rights.
