NIRF rankings and role of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)

June 22, 2020by Nagasyam

Intellectual property rights (IPR) are intangible assets, which gives an exclusivity or monopoly to the owner for a certain period. Intellectual property rights are Patents, Industrial Designs, Trademarks, Copyrights, Geographical Indications, Plant Varieties, and Trade Secrets.

The count of the IPR applications is one of the important parameters to rank an educational institution by National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF.)  NIRF is under the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, and is one of the most popular ranking systems of the nation. According to the University Grants Commission (UGC) guidelines, all educational institutions in India are setting up IPR facilitation center in their campus to improve their ranking, establish an innovation ecosystem, incubate knowledge-based start-ups, and earn additional revenue.

Based on the status (filed, published and granted) of the patents, designs and copyrights, NIRF ranks are secured by educational institutions. The ranking method by NIRF is listed below:

Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) – 10 Marks

Marks distribution

Granted: 4 Marks

Filed: 2 Marks

Licensed: 4 Marks

IPRs considered by NIRF are Patents, Designs and Copyrights for the last three (3) years.

Assessment method will be identified and calculation will be made as per following formula:

IPR = PF + PG + PL

PF is the number of patents, copyrights, designs filed.

PG is the number of patents, copyrights, designs granted/registered.

PL is the number of patents, copyrights, designs licensed.

EP is the total earning from the patents etc. during the last three (3) years.

F is the number of permanent faculty members.

I (P) = 1, if at least one patent was licensed in the previous three years (or) at least one technology transferred during this period;

I (P) = 0, Otherwise.

Assessment of IPR on patents (including designs) filed:

PF = 2 x Percentile parameter (expressed as a fraction) on the basis of PF/F)

Assessment of IPR on patents (including designs) granted:

PG = 4 x Percentile parameter (expressed as a fraction) on the basis of PG/F)

Assessment of IPR on patents (including designs) Licensed:

PL = 2 x I (P) + 2 x Percentile parameter (expressed as a fraction) on the basis of EP/F)
