  • In contemporary times, the research is translational and transforms into services or products. IPRs help in protecting as well as commercializing the inventions. If the innovations framed by college students and alumni are patented and taken up for commercialization by the startups, it will give a competitive advantage to the inventors and entrepreneurs.

  • Possession of IPR makes it safer to enter it in award competitions where public disclosure of the work is required and the risk of someone stealing the idea for commercial gain exists.

  • Even where the Institute would end up becoming the sole owner of students’ work, it would be proud to provide official letters giving credit to the students who are the creators of the works.

  • When IPR for student work is held jointly with the institute, the legal security of the work remains in the safe custody of the institute.

  • NAAC provides special significance for the institution to conduct workshop/seminars on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Industry-Academia Innovative practices.
