Techno Commercial Support

NRDC’s basic charter envisages technical and financial interventions required for closing gaps in the “innovation Chain” through which promising inventions or processes are transformed and developed for ready adoption by the industry.

The objective of this program is to provide essential support to the applicants for overcoming minor issues like testing of the product, authentication of results in field conditions, improvement of prototypes and preparation of comprehensive know-how document.

Under this scheme, NRDC provides techno-commercial support to Indian inventors / scientists / technocrats / NRDC Awardees / NRDC Licensees, etc to make the developed technology marketable and acceptable to entrepreneurs and industries. The techno-commercial support is provided for the following purposes:
