IIIT-H sets up Products Lab
IIIT-Hyderabad has launched a Products Lab to push innovation. It will be part of the institute’s technology transfer office (TTO). The Products Lab will work on creating marketable prototypes of research work from its labs and research centres, a press release said.
IIIT already houses the T-Hub, which is driving a start-up movement in Telangana.
One of the important tasks of the Lab will be to identify potential products based on market and strategy analysis, identify suitable research and build the prototypes of products as per market plans.
Vasudeva Varma, Dean of R&D, IIIT-H, said: “The Products Lab will be working on IIIT-Hyderabad’s commercially viable technologies. We hope this will help bridge the lab-to-land chasm and the adaptability of our research can make a significant contribution to society at large.”
