Patents Granted




The dynamic multidisciplinary, sustained and extensive collaborative R&D at the Centre resulted in 43 inventions/technologies in the areas of Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Electronics and Aeronautics. The scope of collaboration in developing these inventions spreads across laboratories and departments within the Centre and extended to academia and industry within India and abroad. This reflects the extensive collaborative environment created at the Centre.

The Centre has filed 118 national and international patent applications and obtained 20 patents and the rest are at various stages of prosecution. Centre was successful in licensing 13 inventions to the industry to transform nascent scientific discoveries into products and services for the benefit of public good and efforts are on for commercializing the rest of the inventions. This illustrates that, the Centre not only filed and secured a very high per capita number of patents, but has also licensed a high percentage of them to industry.

The inventions/technologies disclosed to the public through patent publications are listed below to reflect the diversity and to explore the possibilities of: (a) licensing inventions, (b) inviting collaborations, and (c) for extending consultancy services.
