1. Policy

R&D Policies and Regulations at S.P.I.T.

 

9.1   Consultancy Projects

Requests for consultancy services come to the Institute due to a variety of factors, such as (i) the professional status, reputation, and, expertise in niche areas, associated with specific individual faculty members (ii) and the Institutional reputation. The roles of the individual and the Institution are complementary and most often value addition arises from this. The individual provides the intellectual inputs and skills and harnesses his expertise and experience towards meeting the client’s requirements. The Institution, on the other hand, provides a diverse range of infrastructural facilities and services which facilitate consultancy and related activities. The effective costs of such facilities and services, reckoned in terms of major initial investments, periodic up gradation etc. cannot be underestimated.

More importantly, the Institutional reputation for excellence, expertise and ethical practices plays a substantial role in attracting consultancy opportunities. Although the roles of the individuals and the institution are closely intertwined, it needs to be emphasized that the Institution adds substantially to the stature of the individuals.

Finally, as all consultancy activity is to be channelled through the Institution and the Institution assumes some indirect responsibility for completion of the assignments to the satisfaction of the clients. Consequently the Institution has to necessarily look forward to a reasonable share of the revenues.

At S.P.I.T. we envisage following categories of consultancy projects:

  1. Category I :
  • A consultancy is requested by an agency (client) from a particular Professor
  • The assignment to be carried out at client site
  • No infrastructural requirement from institute for the assignment
  • Consultant professor will be allowed to visit client site for completion of assignment for 52 days in a year not more than one day per week during running semester.
  1. Category II
  2. A consultancy is requested by an agency (client) from a particular Professor
  3. The assignment to be carried out at Institute
  4. Institute infrastructural required for the assignment
  5. Category III
  6. Consultancy is requested by an agency (client) from Institute
  7. Institute assigns a consultant to complete the assignment
  8. Institute infrastructural required for the assignment
  • Consultant team will be allowed to visit client site for completion of assignment for 52 days in a year not more than one day per week during running semester.
