DSIR looks for patented technology to boost MSME production

The Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) will launch a global hunt for patented technology to accelerate innovation in the country and will hand them over to small industries to speed product development.

The Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) will launch a global hunt for patented technology to accelerate innovation in the country and will hand them over to small industries to speed product development.

DSIR has identified six areas for it namely affordable healthcare, low cost diagnostics, solar energy, water, smart materials and creating wealth from waste -- where there are gaps in technology creating impediment in product development.

According to Samir Brahmachari, DSIR secretary, Rs 20 crore will be allocated annually for acquiring patented technology, develop small ideas available with the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) and help them scale up production.

Talking to reporters, Brahmachari said, "We will look across the world whether there is any patent that is lying in some country that would bridge the gap. We can acquire such patents and give it to the MSME sector on a non-exclusive license basis."

He said that any particular firm keen to have a particular technology on an exclusive basis, they will have to pay for it.

The initiative comes at a time when the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is celebrating its 70th foundation year.

Several technologies developed by CSIR labs have been money-spinners, the most successful being the 'Sonalika' tractor which was hived off to the industry over a decade ago.

"The CSIR earns a good amount as royalty from giving these technologies to the industry," Brahmachari added.
