PSNA – IPR cell

Intellectual property plays an important role in providing a competitive edge to any Institution. The tangible assets like inventions, designs, software, brand name and other creative & innovative ideas are more valuable than physical assets.
PSNA IPR Cell is committed to encourage, protect, manage and commercialize Intellectual Property such as Patent, Copyright, Trademark etc. generated through the College.
The Prime objective of the PSNA –IPR cell is to create awareness and to form a conducive environment in the academics for the development of Intellectual Property and to provide guidance to academic and nonacademic staff, students, scholars, and outside agencies on the practices and the rules of institute regarding intellectual property rights and obligations within the frame work of the IPR policy of the institute.
Faculty and students of PSNA are actively participating in the IPR filing process in different disciplines of Engineering & Technology.It is necessary to protect the Intellectual property in order to enable organizations to earn recognition or financial benefits. Governments of various countries protect the innovative ideas of the inventors through Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). Recently, IPR has become a central issue in the developed and developing countries.
The rationale for this IPR lies in the need to create awareness about the importance of IPRs as a marketable financial asset and economic tool among the researchers, faculty and students of the College.
