PAthway for Research Idea and Knowledge from Academia to Large commercial-Production
Cutting edge science and technology can lead to many innovations that have the potential to make an impact in the world. Many of our present day solutions are the results of scientific discoveries and translation of novel findings into usable products and solutions. Many challenges are faced by researchers when attempting to move from ideation to proof of concept to validated prototypes to scaled up, regulatory approved products that make a difference. While there is no single answer to overcoming the
valley of death that technologies often face in their translation journey, several strategies can be designed to bridge the divide and increase the probability of success. This involves different stakeholders and requires close interaction between academia and industry.
Prikalp talk series summarizes some of the experiences, and learnings towards development of translatable technologies from the eminent academicians. They share the steep learning curve followed by them while translating ground-breaking discovery into a viable business.
