SpicyIP Tidbit: “RIN”

Rural India, it appears, is telling its urban counterpart that it is time the latter caught up with it in terms of innovation. After NIF, we have another NGO helping rural innovators get their due. Rural Innovations Network (RIN), founded by a Mechanical engineer (cant help feeling proud of one of my brethren) Paul Basil, has lent itself to the cause of making commercially viable products out of rural innovations. The primary areas of RIN’s focus are innovations related to water, agriculture, dairy and energy. In addition, RIN has a tie-up with IIT Madras and Servals Automation, an SME. Details on several such grassroots innovations are available here.
