Habsiguda: The CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) has extended support to 50 MSMEs said its director Rakesh Mishra under the Common Research and Technology Development Hubs (CRTDHs) programme.
In 2014-15, the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) launched CRTDHs in public-funded institutions having linkages with and proximity to MSME clusters.
In a bid to bring together coordinators and the MSME beneficiaries of these centers, a workshop was held under the aegis of CRTDH in the city at CCMB. Hyderabad has successfully engaged with the enterprises and evolved a business model for self-sustainability, said Rakesh Mishra.
12 CRTDHs have now been established across the country which provides facilities to research institutes and enterprises for translation of scientific knowledge, ideas, and inventions into products and services. These are availed by the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, innovators and start-ups. The CRTDHs operate on a cost-plus non-commercial basis and are continually evolving a business model for self-sustainability.
They need to be sensitized towards the translation of public-funded R&D into products and processes. The higher involvement is expected to enhance the private sector's share in national R&D expenditure from the present level of about 30-35% to over 50%.
The conclave was inaugurated by Dr Shekhar C Mande, Secretary, DSIR and DG CSIR said CRTDH scheme has facilitated small industry and innovators to take up research, & technology development activities including commercialization in select cases.
