Online Workshop on “Standards-driven Research and Innovation in India” (July 28, 2020: Webinar)
July 28 @ 9:45 am - 1:15 pm
Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India, (TSDSI), is an autonomous, membership based, standards development organisation (SDO) for telecom/ ICT products and services in India. Its charter is to develop standards for access, core, back-haul, and infrastructure systems, solutions and services that best meet India specific telecom/ICT needs, based on research and innovation in India. TSDSI works closely with global standards’ bodies to reflect Indian requirements into International telecom/ICT standards and plays an important role in encouraging generation of Indian IPRs in this technology intensive field and get them incorporated into International standards. This in turn promotes indigenous research, product development and manufacturing. Department of Telecommunications & Ministry of electronics and Information technology, Govt. of India are jointly supporting TSDSI as India’s telecom/ICT SDO. TSDSI was formed in 2014 and is registered as a not for profit Society, under the Indian Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860.
Indian Academic Institutes and Technology Startups are playing a significant role in driving research, innovation and IP creation in the digital technologies space, ranging from IoT/M2M, AIML, Cloud to 5G, 6G and beyond, that are appropriate to India market requirements. There is a need to channelize these activities for incorporating into global standards so as to enable similar regions to benefit from the innovations and also offer a global platform for commercializing the same.
TSDSI, along with its member IIT Bhilai, is organizing an online workshop on “Standards-driven Research and Innovation in India”, to deliberate on standardization potential of research activities being carried out in the premier technology institutions in the central part of India.
Workshop Resource Experts: Dr. Sreejith T V (IIT Bhilai), Dr Rajarshi Mahapatra (IIIT Naya Raipur), Dr Preetam Kumar (IIT Patna), Dr. Vimal Bhatia (IIT Indore) and Dr. Ravi Panwar (IIITDM Jabalpur)
