Message from the Dean Research

Greetings from Team Research &Development of K R Mangalam University.

In recent past, there is a marked change in global environment where the capacity to innovate and commercialize new high-tech products has taken the shape of a distributed global network. Sensing this pulse, India has recognized the strategic and economic importance of competitiveness and knowledge economy. India strives to be ‘Vishwaguru’ and to be placed in top three Economic leaders of World. Knowledge and only knowledge through innovations in every walk of life can be the sole path to achieve this Goal.

Research, Development and Innovation have become integral part of the journey towards it. It is high time that apart from Public Funded R&D Institutes, Industries, Institutes of National Importance and all other Higher Education Institutes come forward to take the challenge and contribute significantly for development of Society as a whole.

We are also looking forward to have very active collaboration with top ranking Academic Institutions and Industries to have outcome based projects. We encourage our Faculty members to have Consultancy projects and Collaborative Projects. We maintain high standards of Integrity and Ethics and comply with ethical codes of research.

KRMU envisages to align its R&D endevours in line with Nation’s aspirations such as ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’,  ‘Technology-enabled development, energy transition and climate action’, ‘Swachh Bharat’, ‘Ayushman Bharat’, ‘Atal Innovation Mission’ ‘Skill Development’ etc.

Intellectual Property Rights

Intellectual property rights are crucial in fostering innovation, creativity, and economic growth. They provide creators and innovators with the assurance that their efforts will be protected, encouraging them to invest in research and
development and bring their ideas to the market.

Intellectual Property (IP) plays a significant role in providing a competitive edge to an organization. The intangible assets of an organization – such as knowhow, inventions, brands, designs and other creative and innovative products are, in present times, more valuable than its physical assets.

With this backdrop, Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) cell seeks to provide guidance to academic and non-academic staff, students, scholars, and outside agencies alike on the practices and rules of the University regarding IPR and related obligations (which include the nature of IP, its ownership, exploitation, technology-transfer, and confidentiality requirements).
