New Technologies

There are many new technologies in the market. Some of them have been commercialized. The organizations that have developed those technologies are as follows.

1. The Council of Scientific & Industrial Research

The Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) was established on September 26, 1942. The immediate goal of CSIR was to bring science and technology to the country and develop research capabilities which would support industry. Today, CSIR is known for its cutting edge R&D knowledgebase in diverse S&T areas and is a contemporary R&D organization. Having pan-India presence, CSIR has a dynamic network of 38 National Laboratories, 39 Outreach Centres, 3 Innovation Complexes and 5 units. CSIR’s R&D expertise and experience is embodied in about 4600 active scientists supported by about 8000 scientific and technical personnel.

CSIR's research and development efforts are led by national goals. Natural resource & knowledge-base of the country, geographical and demographical advantages, energy conservation, environment friendliness, sustainability and CSIR's competence steer the direction of research.

The broad areas of focus are:

Affordable healthcare;

Agri-food technologies;

Sustainable energy;

Chemistry and environment;

Smart & functional materials;

Engincering Structures/ Design & Electronics;

Civil aviation;

Climate change & EarthSystem Sciences; and CSIR-800.

Technologies for transfer

CSIR impacts the society through transfer of technology, knowledge, skills and people. CSIR is endeavouring to develop and promote technologies that reduce the cost of healthcare, agro-food technologies that promote the utilisation of economic crops and increase the income of farmers, facilitating sustainable energy and environmental solutions to reduce carbon footprint, developing smart and functional materials, building materials, engineering structures and civil aviation. CSIR continuously wishes to play a pivotal role in partnering and strengthening Indian industry. Listed here are active and mature technologies that are available for licensing from CSIR labs.

2. Indian Space Research Organisation

India decided to go to space when Indian National Committee for Space Research (INCOSPAR) was set up by the Government of India in 1962. With the visionary Dr Vikram Sarabhai at its helm, INCOSPAR set up the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) in Thiruvananthapuram for upper atmospheric research.

Indian Space Research Organisation, formed in 1969, superseded the erstwhile INCOSPAR. Vikram Sarabhai, having identified the role and importance of space technology in a Nation's development, provided ISRO the necessary direction to function as an agent of development. ISRO then embarked on its mission to provide the Nation space based services and to develop the technologies to achieve the same independently.

Technologies for transfer

The Indian space programme has been pursuing a systematic and well defined policy for transfer of know-how of products / technologies developed by the Indian Space Centres. The objectives have been manifold, viz., to facilitate greater participation of Indian industries in various space projects, their applications in the commercial domain and to take benefit of 'spin-offs' of such technologies. Implementation of this policy has yielded substantial results in terms of gearing up significant industrial participation in the space programme through provision of various products and services by industry relevant to applications involving space systems such as satellites, communications, broadcasting, meteorological services and geospatial information services, as well as the technology transfer from ISRO.

The technology transfer mechanism established during early eighties enables licensing of know-how from various ISRO centres for commercial exploitation. Over 300 technologies have been transferred to industries in the fields of electronic and computer based systems, speciality polymer chemicals and materials, electro optical instruments, mechanical equipments and ground systems related to satellite communications, broadcasting and meteorology. Industries in the large, medium and small scale sectors have largely been beneficiaries of the technology transfer scheme. ISRO has executed many consultancy projects in high technology areas to provide support to various industries.

3. Steinbeis Centre for Technology Transfer India

Steinbeis is an involved in Technical Consulting, Technology Development, Transfer and Trainings. Headquartered in Germany, Steinbeis has a network of more than 1100 ‘Transfer Centres’ (or Innovation Centres) around the world. In partnership with Steinbeis Germany, Steinbeis Centre for Technology Transfer India is the main representative of the Steinbeis Network in India. Steinbeis India is involved in establishing an Indian Steinbeis Network, comprising of Innovation Centres to create a sustainable Innovation support system for Indian Industry, specially SME’s. These Innovation Centres help businesses, large and small, develop / acquire the latest technology in fields of Renewable Energy, Electronics, Automotive and Manufacturing to make their businesses more efficient.

Right from the Inception of Steinbeis Germany in 1971 and Steinbeis India in 2009, Steinbeis India has been integrating academia and industry in various technology areas. With support of German expertise, Steinbeis India supports in capacity-building of Academia for setting-up Innovation Centres to develop low cost innovations as per industry demand. At the same time, the industry is supported in identifying and co-developing low cost innovations with the support of these Innovation Centres. This mechanism is a self-sustaining model for companies to adapt themselves to the changing times.

Technologies for transfer

Process / Product Technologies–Solar PV, Automotive, Manufacturing, Automation & Robotics, Waste to Energy, Urban Mobility / Transport, Technology & Innovation Management etc., Process Technology Examples – Plastics and Rubber Processing, Rusting and Painting Solution, Process Automation, Lean Management etc.
Transfer involves, Applied Technology Development, Technology Scouting & Transfer, and Technology Evaluation & Expert Reports

4. National Research Development Corporation

National Research Development Corporation (NRDC) was established in 1953 by the Government of India, with the primary objective to promote, develop and commercialise the technologies / know-how / inventions / patents / processes emanating from various national R&D institutions / Universities and is presently working under the administrative control of the Dept. of Scientific & Industrial Research, Ministry of Science & Technology. During the past six decade of its existence and in pursuance of its corporate goals, NRDC has forged strong links with the scientific and industrial community in India and abroad and developed a wide network of research institutions, academia and industry and made formal arrangements with them for the commercialisation of know-how developed in their laboratories and is now recognised as a large repository of wide range of technologies spread over almost all areas of industries, viz. Agriculture and Agro-processing, Chemicals including Pesticides, Drugs and Pharmaceuticals, Bio Technology, Metallurgy, Electronics and Instrumentation, Building Materials, Mechanical, Electrical and Electronics etc. It has licensed the indigenous technology to more then 4800 entrepreneurs and helped to establish a large number of small and medium scale industries.

NRDC has also successfully exported technologies and services to both developed as well as the developing countries. NRDC is recognised, particularly in the developing countries, as the source of reliable appropriate technology, machines and services, which are typically suitable for these countries.
