CSIR-Central Glass & Ceramic Research Institute
At a time when organizational planning is undergoing a progressive shift to the indicative planning process, the Planning Division of this institute created on March 01, 2016 is envisaged to catalyse building of long-term strategic vision and develop R&D priorities that would facilitate catapulting the institute into higher trajectories of performance. The Division is envisaged to function as a decision support system for the Director in developing sector-specific targets and provide policy stimulus towards accelerated institutional growth.
The inputs from this vertical are envisaged to drive the other R&D management verticals namely business development, project management, S&T dissemination, technology transfer, international collaboration and so on. In this context, some of the key areas envisaged to be addressed include studies of technology information, forecasting and assessment in the relevant domains with an aim of project formulation, IP landscaping and profiling, mapping inter-agency opportunities, facilitating industry-institute and academia-institute collaborations, global performance mapping in order to achieve benchmarking, and undertake policy research in the area of materials science and engineering.
