 India being a signatory to TRIPS, in response to the changing scenario of technology generation and dissemination, ICAR has developed a policy framework that will guide the management of IP created by its scientists/innovators at its institutions or elsewhere, and that developed with its support.

            The technological assets of ICAR include a number of high yielding and resilient crop varieties, animal and poultry breeds and fish strains, packages of improved crop and animal husbandry practices, natural resource management technologies, improved tools, equipment and farm machinery, improved dairy, poultry and fisheries technologies, post harvest technology, computer software and data sets, and several other processes and products of agriculture and the allied sectors. Agricultural science has been the engine of growth and led to quantum jumps in productivity in the past. Application of ICAR technologies in farmers’ fields and backyards has increased agricultural output and farm incomes. Hence to protect all the Intellectual Properties generated in the Institutes, ICAR implemented the above scheme in all institute with the following objectives:

1.      To set in place an Institutional mechanism to protect/manage Intellectual Property (IP) generated within the ICAR system;

2.      To implement the incentive system, incorporated in the ICAR guidelines for IP management and technology transfer /commercialization and to encourage greater creativity and rapid innovativeness in the system;

3.      To maximise technology transfer by ICAR institutes and to generate income/resources through commercialization of IP

4.      The above planned scheme was implemented in ICAR Research Complex Goa from 25th October 2008 and functioning under the executive control of ITMC (Institute Technology Management Committee)

 

At the institute level, Institute Technology Management Unit (ITMU) is constituted to process all IPR related issues which include:

1.      Consultancy related issues

2.      Paid Training Programmes conducted by the Institute.

3.      Patenting of the Institute Technology

4.      Technology Commercialization

5.      Copyright of Research and technical publications

6.      Germplasm Registration (Plant/Animal/Fish)
