  1. 1. THEME Brain Gain: Promoting Research and Innovation TOPIC Flourishing Innovators and implementing Innovations TEAM IDEATION National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal
  2. 2. Problem Statement India’s innovation rate is high but its implementation rate is low and is unequally distributed. • India scores 3.4 out of 100 in patent families filed in at least 3 offices. The score is 7 to 8.4 for resident patent applications. Patents • India scores 47.5 out of 100 for universities and industries research collaborations for innovations. Including other innovation linkages, the average score is 30.9. Innovation Linkages • India does not stand anywhere as per the utility of these innovations as compared to other countries. India scores only 0.6 out of 100 in new business density. Innovation output India’s rural population is higher than urban population. Although the innovation input in both the sectors is high, the innovation sectors developing in these regions are different and the connections to share these innovations are low.
  3. 3. Solution Proposed Creating a common platform for developing, registering and implementing designs. •Project Acquisition Team: •Discover projects in developed as well as undeveloped stages from colleges, industries, SMEs etc. •Technical Consulting Team: Check sustainability of the design. •Undeveloped designs to be collaborated with research institutes. • Collaborate with a legal firm. •Register the developed designs and provide patents. • Money involved in registration to be reimbursed by company buying the design. • Find appropriate company to manufacture the design as product. • Find target users of the product and create awareness for its utilization. Develop Register Implement The solution provides a pathway for students, industrial employees, people from rural areas or any other individual to develop their paper work into an actual design under observations of technical experts and thus removes the barrier for innovation such as lack of facilities, illiteracy, poverty and lack of confidence.
  4. 4. Solution Implementation IDEATION will go through following four steps to implement the proposed solution. DESCRIPTION STAKEHOLDERS RESOURCES •Design plans to get projects . • Categorize projects. • Apply for grants of related categories. •Students, Industrial employees, Micro entrepreneurs from urban as well as rural sectors. • Educational and research institutes. •Student ambassadors • Volunteer heads in collaborated industries. • Volunteer heads in rural sectors. • Research institute representatives. •Analyze technical aspects of projects. • Compare projects with current technologies. • Suggest companies and institutes for project collaboration. • Research labs and institutes. • Technical Consultancies. • Companies developing current technologies of particular category • Finance resources: Collaborated companies, Government programs • Human resources: Technical NGOs, professors, publishers of current technologies STEP PROJECT AQUISITION TECHNICAL CONSULT 2 1
  5. 5. Solution Implementation DESCRIPTION STAKEHOLDERS RESOURCES • Collaborate with a legal firm to register the designs of our customers. • Collaborate with a company to market and manufacture the product. • Legal firms • Patent registration office • Sponsor /manufacture/marketing companies • Lawyers • Partners and supporters • NGOs and social enterprises • Analyze the product users. •Host awareness events and workshops. • Implement the product service at required places and get the feedback. • Particular user firms • Trainers • Public •Financial resources: Collaborating company and Partners • Human resources: Firms supporting the awareness program STEP COLLABORATE WITH COMPANIES PRODUCT AWARENESS 4 3 At most of the stages, government can become the major stakeholder, resource and supporter.
  6. 6. Marketing IDEATION will be accessible to everyone for which following efforts would be exercised. IN INDUSTRIES - Inspire to create innovations through constant interactions - Train active people to collaborate between industrial employees and Ideation. IN COLLEGES - Provide Ideation updates to students - Take part in workshops and awareness programs - Bring student projects to project acquisition team IN RURAL AREAS - Create a youth committee of Ideation ambassadors in villages. - Train these people to collaborate between micro entrepreneurs in villages and Ideation. - Implement Ideation projects in needed sectors AMBASSADORS • Create website for online submission of ideas from anywhere in India. • Attend and collaborate with conferences for product marketing. • Provide surveys and research on product to manufacture and marketing companies to convince them for the product’s scope, sustainability and profits.
  7. 7. Finance IDEATION is a non profit organization and will be working with following cash flow. • Donations • Contribution made by the member or public at large on appeal made by Ideation members for the specific purpose. • Proceeds of the sale of articles and publishments. • Government grants. • Money received as a cash price by the members in various competitions for presenting the work of organization. • Workshops and awareness programs. • Website • Publishments of articles, surveys etc • Workshops and awareness programs • Transportations • Advertisements CASH INFLOW CASH OUTFLOW
  8. 8. MEASUREMENTS Ideation Impact IDEATION will broadly measure its impact in terms of increase in use of Indian innovations at all levels of lifestyle for our sustainability. • Increase in number of patents registered from particular areas. • Increase in number of collaborating companies and supporters. • Increase in productivity and profits of companies buying the designs. • Increase in economy of the areas where Ideation projects are implemented. SCALABILITY • Start with developed projects which are to be registered and sold out to companies and then follow up with research projects. • Start with Students, then industries and then rural areas. • Expansion from cities to cities, villages to villages to scale all over India. • Website for accommodation of expansion.
  9. 9. SUSTAINABILITY • Sustainability of ideation depends on inspiring innovations. • Increasing research collaborations, networking and marketing and awareness of Ideation products will increase the sustainability of Ideation. MONITORS • Project acquisition team  Increase project intakes • Technical consultation team  Increase efficiency • Networking team  Bring reliable and excellent stakeholders • Marketing team  Pitch Ideation to all stakeholders • Event Management team  Workshops and awareness programs for inspiring innovations and introducing products. • Publishments Management team  Publish Ideation reports, surveys, articles etc
  10. 10. Challenges IDEATION will face some challenges and the proposed mitigations are as follows: CHALLENGES • Patent offices are not present all over India. • Insecurity for unregistered designs. • Large number of categories of designs. • Convince the companies to buy the design. • Illiteracy in rural areas and of industrial employees. • Convince public and teach them to use the emerging technologies. MITIGATIONS • The collaborated legal firm for registration of patents should have maximum number of branches. • Create a base with developed and registered designs to build the trust. • Collaborate with Institutes with different research programs. • Provide survey and feedbacks from related buyers to companies buying the design. • Literate volunteers and trainers for collaboration. • Awareness programs, cost reduction and resource conservations.
