RESEARCH POLICY OF BHAVAN’S COLLEGE

Research basically is a work of passion. It involves a dedicated 24X7 thought process focused on the agenda or plan of work. It initiates first with a thought …. an idea  which needs to be substantiated with facts and data . This is an interesting but a mammoth task requiring infrastructure facilities and funding support.

Bhavan’s College recognizes the potential of its staff and students and hopes to motivate them through a well thought out research policy relevant within the existing work scenario .Recognizing the changing context of the scientific enterprise, and the needs of globalization, we  enunciates the following objectives  for  its  research Policy

  • To provide necessary autonomy and freedom of functioning for all academic staff and student, so that an ambience for truly creative work is encouraged, while ensuring at the same time that the science and technology enterprise is fully committed to its social responsibilities and commitments
  • To integrate scientific knowledge with insights from other disciplines, and ensure fullest involvement of scientists and technologists  in all streams  so that the spirit and methods of scientific enquiry permeate deeply into all areas of education
  • To attract the brightest young minds to careers in science and technology, by conveying a sense of excitement concerning the advancing frontiers, and by creating suitable employment opportunities for them.
  • To build and maintain centers of excellence in active collaboration with industries , with the aim to raise the level of work in selected areas to the highest international standards
  • To establish an Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) regime, which maximizes the incentives for the generation and protection of intellectual property by all types of inventors

STRATEGY AND IMPLEMENTATION PLAN

Keeping in view these broad objectives, it is essential to spell out an implementation strategy that will enable identification of specific plans, programmes and projects, with clearly defined tasks, estimates of necessary resources, and time targets. Some of the key elements of the implementation strategy will be as follows:

FUNDING

Being an academic institute involved mainly with UG teaching, funds are limited. Thus external funding resource must be actively sought after. It would be prudent on the staff to see that 50% of all their research activity per year gets funded. This will alleviate the college burden of finance for research. Research funding by the Government of India comes from a number of sources. For basic science and technology research, these include the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Department of Science and Technology (DST), and University Grants Commission (UGC). For applied research, these include the CSIR, DBT and Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC). Other funding authorities are the Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO), the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the Department of Ocean Development (DOD), the Indian Council for Social Science Research (ICSSR), and the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MEF) etc.

OPTIMAL UTILIZATION OF EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE AND COMPETENCE

Science and technology is advancing at a very fast pace, and obsolescence of physical infrastructure, as also of skills and competence, take place rapidly. Steps should be taken to network the existing infrastructure, investments and intellectual strengths, wherever they exist, to achieve effective and optimal utilization, and constantly upgrade them to meet changing needs. This can be undertaken through procurement of high grade equipments from major research projects sanctioned by Govt that can be placed for common utilization under a staff in charge. Creation of a common instrumentation room for this end should be sought. Additionally, the Govt provides 75% reduction in the charges for analysis at certain centers like  SAIF, IIT and that should be availed

STRENGTHENING OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE

UGC supports creation of “colleges of excellence” and gives grants for rebuilding infrastructure and Bhavan’s College should be selected for special support to raise the standard of teaching and research.

HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT

Bhavan’s College as a part of their annual function must hold a scientific meet wherein schemes for continuing education and training of university and college teachers in contemporary research techniques and in emerging areas of science be strengthened and new innovative programmes started. Active support .for training abroad wrt financial aid should be provided so to build up a skilled base rapidly. .Incentives for obtaining high end grants in terms of extra remuneration, travel grant from the college to attend international seminars, workshop should be provided. Rigid Quality Standards, and Accreditation of testing and calibration laboratories, according to international requirements, should be set up, as it will give an enhanced push to convince industries about the quality of work undertaken by academia

INDUSTRY AND SCIENTIFIC R&D

Bhavan’s College must make every effort to achieve synergy between industry and scientific research. Autonomous Technology Transfer Organizations for various streams in the line of Bhavan’s Research Centre (BRC) should be created as associate organizations of college to facilitate transfer of the know-how generated to industry. Increased encouragement should be given, and flexible mechanisms should be evolved to help, scientists and technologists to transfer the know-how generated by them to the industry and be a partner in receiving the financial returns. Industry should be vigorously sought to financially adopt or support educational and research institutions, fund courses of interest to them, create professional chairs etc. to help direct S&T endeavors towards tangible industrial goals.

INDIGENOUS RESOURCES AND TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE

Indigenous knowledge, based on our long and rich tradition, should be developed and harnessed for the purpose of wealth and employment generation. Innovative systems to document, protect, evaluate and to learn from India’s rich heritage of traditional knowledge of the natural resources of land, water and bio-diversity should be the motto of research from Bhavan’s college.  Development of technologies that add value to India’s indigenous resources and which provide holistic and optimal solutions that are suited to Indian social-cultural-economic ethos should  be developed.

GENERATION AND MANAGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), have to be viewed, not as a self-contained and distinct domain of staff, but rather as an effective instrument that would be relevant to the college . Thus just filing of patent without having an industrial partnership and industry understanding for taking up of the technology will have no meaning and filing of patent just for name should be discouraged. The development of skills and competence to manage IPR and leveraging its influence can be given thrust.

INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COOPERATION

Scientific research and technology development can benefit greatly by international cooperation and collaboration. Common goals can be effectively addressed by pooling both material and intellectual resources. International collaborative programmes, especially those contributing directly to our scientific development should be encouraged between academic institutions and national laboratories in India and their counterparts in all parts of the world, including participation in mega science projects as equal partners.

MONITORING

Effective, expeditious, transparent and science-based monitoring and reviewing mechanisms should be in place. In this context the “Bhavan’s College Research Monitoring Committee” should be strengthened to ensure representation of all the departments with powers and responsibility of smooth and speedy implementation
