Guideline for the formation of committee and submission of Unique Innovation
Every institutes keen on seeking fund for filing patent need to form a committee as per guidelines mentioned below :
• All institute’s decision-making body with respect to incubation / IPR / technology-licensing will consist of faculty and experts who have excelled in technology translation. Other faculty in the department/institute will have no say, including heads of department, heads of institutes, deans or registrars”.
• All the application for patent filing should be submitted to a minimum five membered committee consisting of two faculty members (having developed sufficient IPR and translated to commercialisation), two of the institute’s alumni/ industry experts (having experience in technology commercialisation) and one legal advisor with experience in IPR, will examine the patent application. Institute can use alumni/ faculty of other institutes as members, if they cannot find sufficiently experienced alumni / faculty of their own.
• Institute IPR cell or incubation center will only be a coordinator and facilitator for providing services to faculty, staff and students. They will have no say on how the invention is carried out, how it is to be patented.
• Funding will be provided to students/faculty for Patent Application having the institute either as applicant / co-applicant of the application. (The patent application will not be funded if the application doesn’t have Institute as applicant / co-applicant. The fund will be transferred only to the institute bank account and not to the individual account)
