|I am a science graduate, post graduate in public policy, and hold an advanced diploma in patent laws. I count with about eight years of working experience. I am experienced and specialized in connecting the pharmaceutical/life sciences sector, micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) concepts, public policies, and innovation on the basis of the cluster development methodology. |
I successfully implemented cluster development programs with a specific reference to innovation promotion amongst MSMEs and entrepreneurs. I have been involved in industrial cluster development, innovation promotion among MSMEs, entrepreneurs, start-ups, S&T personnel through industry-academia linkages, mass level technology transfer platforms, promotion of technology commercialization, inter-cluster & inter-national R&D collaborations, and overall innovation-ecosystem strengthening.
Within the Foundation for MSME Clusters (FMC), I undertake regional industrial development projects with the Government, multi- & bi-lateral agencies, S&T/R&D organizations, industrial associations, technology incubators, and industry. I also have several research papers to my credit.
