Message from the Vice Chancellor

As an integral part of O.P. Jindal Global University, the Jindal Initiative for Research in IP and Competition (JIRICO) is a step we have taken to inform policymaking by undertaking cutting-edge research at the interface of innovation, intellectual property (IP) and competition. JIRCO is undertaking a unique survey – The 2016 JIRICO Innovation Survey – with an overarching objective of understanding drivers and challenges of engaging in innovation practices in organisations operating in India, and their reliance on IP and non-IP instruments. I cordially invite you to participate in this pan-India innovation survey to help us gain insights on innovation ecosystem and IP practices in India.

Prof. (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar
Vice Chancellor, O.P. Jindal Global University, and Dean, Jindal Global Law School
