CCSHAU is committed firmly to the development of new knowledge and innovation for the benefit of farmers in the State of Haryana and the nation of India. The creative ideas, innovations, and discoveries of its faculty, researchers and technical staff, and the subsequent transfer of those ideas to use through extension services, training and commercial application, are critical components of the University’s mission and its commitment to India and its farmers. The new knowledge generated through the research, scholarship, extension and creative activities of the University have transformed the lives of the citizens of the State of Haryana. The WTO regime in India has led to a trend wherein users – including farmers – now are willing to pay for the value-added technology, seed and germplasm. It follows then that the University must conduct innovative research and development to be globally competitive, including a new approach to capture the added value through IPR protection and its subsequent transfer to commercial application through partnerships with industry, government agencies, seed associations and other appropriate organizations. Furthermore, the University’s faculty and technical staff must be full partners in this new regime, through incentives for devoting their significant time and effort to IPR protection and technology transfer initiatives. Following efforts have been done:

  • IPR Cell established on December, 22, 2005
  • MOU between MSU,USA and CCSHAU Signed on March 21, 2006
  • Capacity Building Training by Dr R.B.srivastava at MSU,USA for two months(June-July, 2006)
  • IPR Policy of CCSHAU- Approved by Board of Management on 26. 4.2007
