Institution’s Innovation Council, Central University of Jharkhand along with MoE’s Innovation Cell, Govt. of India hosted a talk on IPR Awareness Program under National Intellectual Property Awareness mission following the theme of Creative India; Innovative India on 10th Aug 2022
The programme started with Dr. Bhaskar Singh and Dr. Devdas Laata briefing about the program and Institute Innovation Council. Dr. Bhaskar Singh then explained about the theme of the day’s lecture and introduced Mr. Abhishek Jaswal.
Mr. Abhishek Jaswal, examiner of patents and design, Government of India started his lecture by giving a brief introduction and definition of intellectual property rights and its various types such as patents, designs, trademarks, copyrights etc. He then explained about the patents and various factors associated with it such as granting of term, Statuary rights given to inventor, Monopoly rights and territorial rights by giving an example of LED bails used in international cricket matches.
He then proceeded by briefing about the criteria and conditions for obtaining the patents with several examples of patents like drones, band phones, foldable cloth hangers etc. Along with the types of inventions which cannot be patented. Further, he explained about the various steps taken by government of India for promoting the IPR such as reduction of patent filing fee under Patent (Ammendment) Rules, 2021, with a detailed overview of steps from filing to grant of patent.
After this, he explained about the IPR in reference to designs. He shed light on various aspects of designs and its importance by giving an example of designs of bottles. He then while explaining various criterias for obtaining design registration also gave examples of designs which cannot be registered. He continued by outlining a detailed overview of steps from filing to registration of a designs. Continuing with the IPR in reference to trademarks, copyrights and Geographic Indications (GI), he shed light on various types, importance, term and identification of trademarks, copyrights and Geographic Indications. Along with various steps involved from filing to grant of copyright and trademark.
He then concluded his lecture by briefly describing about semiconductor integrated circuit layout designs (SICL design) and points to remember while filing for patents. The lecture session ended with various Q&A and interactions between participants and Mr. Abhishek Jaswal and vote of thanks given by Dr. Bhaskar Singh.
Institution’s Innovation Council, Central University of Jharkhand hosted an Impact Lecture Series on the topic of ‘Coal resources into carbon quantum dots: A low-cost technology developed under Innovate in India’ on 08th August 2022 under the patronage of Prof. (Dr.) Kshiti Bhusan Das, Hon’ble Vice Chancellor, Central University of Jharkhand (CUJ) and Chairmanship of Dr. Devdas Laata, Associate Professor & Chairman, Institution's Innovation Council, Central University of Jharkhand (CUJ).
The programme was convened and co-convened by Dr. Bhaskar Singh, Assistant Professor, DEVS, CUJ and Dr. Nitesh Bhatia , Assistant Professor, DBA, CUJ. The programme started with Dr. Bhaskar Singh briefing about the program and Institute Innovation Council. He then explained about the theme of the day’s lecture and introduced Dr. Binoy K Saikia.
Dr. Binoy K Saikia, Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize Awardee-2021, Principal Scientist, CSIR-North East Institute of Science & Technology, Jorhat, Assam started his lecture by briefing the nature of lecture with reference to missions like Make in India and Innovate in India. He then proceeded by giving a brief about various R&D projects occurring at csir-NEIST along with various working fields of the institute such as Bio-fertilizars, Bioremediation, Energy and Environmental studies, membrane technologies, active pharmaceutical intermediates etc.
He also told the story of the discovery of graphene, its various possible applications. He later explained about the nanoscience, nanomaterials and nanotechnology with respect to carbon and it's sheer impact on current market share with CAGR report. He also shed light on how carbon nanomaterials can be essential in future-open problems associated with it especially the high cost which needs to be addressed. Further, he explained about the carbon dots claiming it to be the most futuristic carbon nanomaterial and the available sources and methods of making these carbon dots and nanomaterials.
He then briefed about his work and findings related to Coal derived CQDs. He while explaining about various properties of the CQD for the synthesis of carbon quantum dots from different synthetic routes utilizing several carbon feedstock. He discussed about the effect of low cost scalable method via ultrasonication and chemical oxidation for the synthesis through suitable plausible mechanism. He also shed light on the application of the produced CQD in biomedical field (especially the possibility of using of indigenous contrast agent in bio-imaging of cells) and the application of coal derived N,S- CQDs as plant growth promoter and plant metabolites.
He continued by outlining his research on nano-diamonds from coals and from air pollutants and various application of nanodiamonds in biomedical science and catalytic application. The lecture session ended with various Q&A between participants and Dr. Binoy K Saikia followed by vote of thanks by Dr Ramesh Oraon.
