“Twenty first century will be the century of knowledge, indeed the century of Mind. Innovation is the key for the production as well as processing of Knowledge. A nation’s ability to convert knowledge into wealth and social good through the process of innovation will determine its future. In this context, issues of generation, valuation, protection and exploitation of intellectual property (IP) are going to become critically important all around the world. Intellectual property will no longer be seen as a distinct or self-contained domain, but rather as an important and effective policy instrument that would be relevant to a wide range of socioeconomic, technological and political concerns. The development of skills and competence to manage IPR and leverage its influence will need increasing focus; in particular, in the third world.” (From the book Reinventing India by Dr.Raghunath Mashelkar)

A patent is an exclusive right granted for an invention to the inventor or patentee; by the patents office which allows the inventor exploit the invention for a limited period, generally 20 years within the given territory. Basically patents refer to inventions. They are part of Intellectual Property, which is a legal way to protect all creations of the human mind. Intellectual Property is divided into two, namely Industrial Property (patents, trademarks and industrial designs) and Copyright.

In recent years RIT has made rapid strides in the development and management of intellectual property as well as its commercialisation. The IPR cell of RIT has provisionally registered 25 patents over the last four years and out of around five products/technologies are in process of commercialisation. The IPR cell at RIT looks forward to assisting and accelerating the interaction with industries for sustained growth in IPR to contribute to the wealth creation of the nation.
