Implementation of Innovation Management Process

  • Implementation of such Innovation Management in Center of Excellence in Nanotechnology (CoEN) at Asian Institute of Technology based in Thailand
  • Objective was to establish innovation process for faculty, students and researchers for early identification of potential inventions to enhance commercial success through establishment of sustainable network involving diverse stakeholders / funding agencies. Innovation management process was targeted to:
    » Set up a system for the protection of the innovations in CoEN through strategic patenting processes.
    » Strategize publications in journals and patent application filing
    » Create a technology marketing scheme including the mapping of a network of stakeholders to outreach the developed technologies in CoEN and » Identify potential commercialization partners
    » Design an effective “Technology Portfolio Documentation” for Marketing of the innovations.
    » Provide a value added service by identifying patentable innovations and draft appropriate patent applications for filing
    » Implement the “IPRinternalise®” model and train the researchers on techniques of patent search, evaluation of prior art so that they are able to design their research activities to lead to patentable and non-infringing inventions.
  • Five patent applications were drafted and filed that included technical discussions with inventors, training inventors to document technical disclosures of inventions, training inventors on prior art search and how to analyse patent documents, drafting of patent application, interaction with the technology transfer office and patent office personnel from National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) of Thailand
  • Technology portfolio was designed and developed for the CoEN based on identified inventions as well as protected technologies
  • The Technology Portfolio release function was organized


In CoEN, a system is put in place to conduct a project-wise due diligence of the research activities at the CoEN to:

  • Categorize the technologies
  • Evaluate the novelty, Inventive steps and industrial applicability of each invention and to access the patentability of the inventions
  • Organize systematic documentation of the categorized technologies for the preparation of a technology portfolio brochure
  • Map and identify potential partners for commercialization
  • Identify partners and funding agencies
  • Plan a mega event for the marketing of the technology portfolio of CoEN

Blending IPR in Innovation Management

  • Faculty (Professor) in Mechanical Engineering department, teaching Mechanical Engineering Courses
  • Teaching Intellectual Property Rights to Engineering, management students and participants from industry
  • Projects undertaken for technology development and management of IPR in educational institute
  • Publications in the field of IPR, mechanical engineering and effective use of IPR in educational quality enhancement

Leadership Role

Building New Platforms for Higher Education

Recognizing that education should facilitate the creation of learning and thinking minds with ability to develop and apply the acquired knowledge for societal benefit, a lead programme, “IPRinternaliseTM” was initiate in collaboration with Dr Prabuddha Ganguli to inculcate cohesive abilities of problem definition and solving, observation, exploring existing knowledge domains to seek solutions and then integrating them to synthesis viable solutions. This programme has been initiated at the Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, Pune and is running for the last 5 years. This has also led to the development of an institutional IPR Policy at Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, Pune. The success of this programme has already led to other institutions adopting this programme within their educational framework. (Ref: “Model IPRinternaliseTM – Integrating Intellectual Property Rights in Technical Education”, World Patent Information, 2008, Vol. 30, pp 220-224)
