Celebrating Excellence in Intellectual Property

Greetings!!

We are writing to share with you that CII had instituted its Industrial Intellectual Property Awards in 2015 with the aim of recognizing and celebrating those enterprises which have embraced IP generation and protection to fuel their business and economic growth. The Grand Jury that will select the winners, is chaired by Dr. R A Mashelkar, one of the doyens who contributed immensely in India’s transformation to an innovation-driven economy.

Accepting the requests from stakeholders, we have added two new categories of IP performance evaluation of (1) Academic and (2) R&D institutions. The industry categories of large, MSME, SME and Startups remain same. All these categories will have awards for Patents, Trademarks and Designs. The questionnaire has also been made rigorous and scientific, focussing on the impact and commercial translation of the IP portfolios of the companies.

We would like to request you to kindly consider participating 7th CII Industrial Intellectual Property Awards 2021 which will help the Indian Industry/ R & D Institute/ Academic Institute to champion in IP generation and protection to fuel their business and economic growth.
