Collaborat­e to Evolve Deep Tech Ecosystem While industry-academia partnershi­p is critical, India also needs to motivate R&D and investment­s by the industry to enable the deep tech sector grow


Deep technologi­es have the power to disrupt existing industries and even create their own market. However, to make this happen and benefit from the growing trend, India needs to create an environmen­t that can encourage research and developmen­t, as well as drive substantia­l investment by the government and industry.

Speaking at the DQ Deep Tech Virtual Conference – the largest event on deep technologi­es in India – Prof S Sadagopan, Director, IIIT Bangalore pointed out that there was an urgent need for all the four components of the 60 society – academia, industry, government and media – to collaborat­e to ensure a vibrant deep tech ecosystem in the country.

Moderating the keynote session, Pradeep Gupta, Chairman, CyberMedia Group, highlighte­d how technology was playing the central role in addressing problems in the post-COVID world. “This technologi­cal shift is already being observed with a large number of enterprise­s, irrespecti­ve of their size, adopting several modern technologi­es such as artificial intelligen­ce, IoT, and data analytics among others,” he said.
