Indian innovation at crossroads?
While TRIPs is good news for India, Clause 3d is not so. Prof Trevor M Jones tells us why
India has a proud record of innovation in a number of fields, e.g. satellite technology, mathematics, and particularly, pharmaceutical chemistry. Recently, the economic and social growth of India has made it a world focus for investment in innovation across a broad spectrum of industries; notably in IT, nanotechnology and pharmaceutical/ biotechnology R&D. Whilst the low-cost base of science and technology in India has been an attraction for inward investment; in recent years, the world class technical (and often young) skill base that it has grown, together with the national enthusiasm and commitment to innovative successes, has provided an added dimension to a future of collaborative and indigenous growth.
