Academic-commercial transition, though need of the hour for crucial economic development of India happens rarely on a large scale. Academic research and findings conducted at various labs stay confined either within the four walls of the lab or finds space as academic articles and disclosures in journals/IP. In India, 80% of filed patents from academic institutions are not licensed ever and never see light of commercialisation. The talk will focus on how to radically change the way we think about academic research and find a way to commercialise and value-add conventional lab based academics to a sustainable entrepreneurship.
