The students of IIT Kharagpur have launched an initiative called the Technology Transfer Group (TTG) in collaboration with the Sponsored Research and Industrial Consultancy Cell (SRIC) of IIT Kharagpur to create a comprehensive database of all the research initiatives undertaken by the students and faculty of the Institute and to ultimately ensure that the technologies developed are commercialised. Special emphasis is being laid on IP protection to such technologies thanks to the involvement of the Institute’s department of Law, the Rajiv Gandhi School of IP Law. Thus far, 10 broad areas of technology have been identified with over 160 projects being submitted for evaluation. Further details may be obtained at http://www.ttg-sric.iitkgp.ernet.in/index.htm.
