IIP works on in-house and industry sponsored contract research projects for several global and Indian companies. The major achievements of scientific research organisation are primarily reflected in its research publications and the intellectual property rights it holds. Research output of our projects and PhD work is screened internally by Patent and Publication committee.
Based on its recommendations our scientists publish their results in National or International journals if it only of academic interest otherwise all the research work of commercial interest is safe guarded through filing patents in India and abroad.

Currently IIP has been granted 180 patents in India and 46 patents in foreign countries. Additionally IIP has filed 92 patents in India and 73 patents abroad which are yet to be granted.
