IPR Details


  • About IPR

1. Patenting in Engineering, Patenting in Pharmaceuticals and Patent Search Methodology:
These are the basic workshops which GIC had organised since from beginning to make faculty and students from various branches of technical education to make them familiar with the kind of IPR, basics of patent and introduction to patent search techniques.
2. Patent Search and Analysis Report (PSAR)
This is the kind of activity launched by GTU in September 2013, with an objective to increase awareness regarding patents among students by making them familiarity with patent websites & patent documents. In this activity each student of B.E. 7th Semester is required to study at least 5 patents related to his/her project and have to prepare Patent Search and Analysis Report (PSAR) via specially developed web portal by GTU. Via this PSAR activity, in a period of five academic years more than 9.30 lakh patents have been studied by more than 1.89 lakh students from various online sources, which has played a significant role for IP awareness among students and faculty.
3. Patent Drafting Exercise (PDE)
In this activity all students of final year BE, were asked to draft a provisional patent documents for their project just by assuming that their project is Innovative & Patentable. All students were taught about provisional patent filing procedure, steps & fees and about required details for various patent filing forms (1, 2 & 3). This activity was also carried out via specially developed web portal by GTU.
Due to PSAR and PDE activity the literacy for IPR/Patents among all students and faculty was raised to a very significant level.
4. Patent Clinic
It’s a unique initiative started by GIC to provide all possible assistance to students and faculty members from any branch of science or technology, to file patent for his/her innovative work or project. Patent Clinic is a two days’ workshop in which GIC organises seminars and workshops on Basics of IPR/Patents, Patent Prior Art Search Techniques and its importance, Patenting System in India and Hands on exercises to draft patents.

The whole value chain of patent search for novelty checking of any project is carried out using free and paid patent databases. The access to paid databases for students and faculty is provided by GTU. Patent drafting is covered during a span of two days along with practical sessions. The whole program is absolutely free for students and faculty members of GTU. Till today thirty three such sessions of patent clinic were organised, and provided support for filing for more than 100 patents.

5. PatenTrack
To promote innovative culture among students in a fun learning way, GIC had started series of PatenTrack competition with an objective to make the patent search fun learning process among students, to spread the awareness about importance of patents, to make students aware about patent holdings of various giant innovative companies, to develop a positive attitude of students for the patent search, to inspire students for doing innovative projects and to develop a competitive mind-set with presentation skills.
PatenTrack is a two days competition, where in patent search by students will be carried out for the assigned portfolio of innovative companies or the assigned technologies. Later on the group discussion among participants on current IPR topics & presentation of analysed patents by each group for the studied patents were made.
6. Post Graduate Diploma in IPR
Further, to increase the skilled human resource that are not only technically sound but also having in-depth knowledge of IPR and patents, GTU had launched a one year, off-campus programme on “Post Graduate Diploma in IPR” from September 2014. As of 2018 third batch of same course is going on.
7. IP Valuation and Management (IPVM) courses
Further, to increase the skilled human resource that are not only technically sound but also having in-depth knowledge of IP Valuation and Management, First batch completed their course in 2016, which received a huge response from participants. And second batch of “IP Valuation and Management” was started in 2017-2018.
8. Project Monitoring and Mentoring System (PMMS)
GTU has developed an innovative platform, where in real time status of each student project is monitored & observed by students, internal guides, HOD, principal as well as by university. Students can update about their progress in project & guide can comment on their status, progress & problems.
The objective of PMMS portal is to develop a system for helping students to get appropriate help & mentoring online and to help them work more systematically on their project. This is been used for all projects being carried out by the students in all BE colleges/institutes, affiliated with GTU.
Students will be able to update their progress in the project and on which the guide & external mentor (if any), can comment on status, progress and problems. This will increase collaboration & co-creation while improving novelty of their work.
PMMS is platform which covers multiple activities being carried during final year of B.E. It covers activities such as student registration, team formation, Periodic Progress Report (PPR), Patent Search & Analysis Report (PSAR) generation activity, Design Engineering-Canvas activity, Business Model Canvas (BMC) & its report upload, Patent Drafting Exercise (PDE), Final project report upload, Uploading the plagiarism search report, Completion Certificate generation.

Via PMMS activities, GTU managed & collected data for nearly 60,000 final year BE projects & associated PMMS activities data, carried out during period of four academic years 2014-15 to 2017-18.
