NITK sets up IPR cell to pursue patents for research work

 The National Institute of Technology - Karnataka (NITK), Surathkal, has set up an intellectual property rights (IPR) cell. It has also taken up the task of framing an IPR policy that will guide the Institute on the path of filing patents for works of research that can be commercially exploited.

Swapan Bhattacharya, director of NITK said, "Thus far, the faculty has only focused on carrying out the research without bothering about filing for patents. The research carried out by A C Hegde, head of the department of chemistry on electroplating has been commercially exploited in state of Washington in USA. The faculty of the institute so far have filed for six patents and more are in the pipeline."................
