'India needs to create its own venture fund for nanotech'
In India recently, Cheetham spoke to Mint about what India can do to spur private ventures among its researchers, particularly in nanotechnology. Edited excerpts:
Why has India lagged behind in commercializing academic research?
It's partly education, partly a structural issue. In the US and the UK, we have developed courses in entrepreneurship for undergraduates, graduates, post-docs and even faculty. This helps you develop a scientific community, at least a subset of which is knowledgeable and sophisticated about what it takes to create a company. I think there's a lot that can be done on the education side in India.
