Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind: inventions; literary and artistic works; and symbols, names and images used in commerce. IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright, and trademarks, also called as Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs), which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. An IPR policy is the cornerstone of innovation and creativity for academia. It provides structure, predictability, and a framework for talented minds to do what they do best: create and innovate. The aim is to contribute to transforming industry and society by delivering research- led education, promoting innovation, collaboration and fostering human values.

The key objectives of NIDMP IPR Cell:

  • To provide a framework to foster innovation and creativity in the areas of science, technology, design, and humanities by nurturing new ideas and research, in an ethical environment.
  • To protect intellectual property (IP) rights generated by faculty/ personnel, students, and staff of the institute, by translating their creative and innovative work into IP rights.
  • To lay down an efficient, fair, and transparent administrative process for ownership control and assignment of IP rights and sharing of revenues generated by IP, created, and owned by the institute. Additionally, in cases of government funded research, the inventor(s)/ organization(s) should disclose their IP filings to the Government Agency(s) that have funded their research.
  • To promote more collaborations between academia and industry through better clarity on IP ownership and IP licensing.
