School of Management & Entrepreneurship - IIT Jodhpur

About CoEIP


IIT Jodhpur has evolved into a multidisciplinary institution with departments spanning sciences, mathematics, technologies, liberal arts, and management & entrepreneurship. Excellence in inclusive education with the urge to inculcate the spirit of Innovations, Entrepreneurship, and Socio-economic Development has been the focus at IIT Jodhpur. Recognizing the relevance of responsible use of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) as integral to its innovation value chain, IIT Jodhpur has formulated and is actively implementing its institutional IPR policy.

The structured discovery and innovation activities over the last few years have brought to light the need for a Centre of Excellence (CoE) on Intellectual Property in IIT Jodhpur. The faculty and staff members of the centre are expected to be engaged in

The proposed Centre of Excellence on IP will be part of the School of Management & Entrepreneurship (SME).

The CoE will function as a focal point for the exploration of avenues for inter-institutional synergistic collaborations in human resource and capacity building programmes to enhance the value of the combined creative potential and output of these institutions. Further, the CoE would also serve as a continual learning group not only to identify the current and emerging unmet national and regional needs to be addressed but also to research on the impact of evolving technologies and socio-economic frameworks to plan and flag off what lies ahead. The core focus would lie on issues about IP management, viz., patent search, patent technologies, patent analysis, patent landscaping, and commercialization. The CoE would indulge in academic and applied research in the area of IPR.
