Extramural Sponsored Research

The University’s goal is to become nationally and internationally recognized for the quality of its research and creative endeavors and their applicability to improving quality of life, generating new insights and expanding the boundaries of human knowledge and creativity. University has created a strong ecosystem for research conduct including state-of-the-art laboratory spaces, start-up funds or seed-funds, professional development assistance, consumable grants, fellowships to research scholars, travel support, etc. Special emphasis is laid on sponsored research funded extramurally through submission of competitive grant proposals. Extramurally sponsored research not only helps in creating sustainable research environment at the University but also enhances faculty member’s scholarly endeavours.

Intellectual Property Rights Policy and Mechanism

The Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy of the Shiv Nadar University (SNU) aims at familiarizing all faculty, staff and students with the process of filing of patent applications on their innovations, and associated issues, to encourage and facilitate transfer of technologies, which may offer shared benefits to both SNU and the inventors and have positive impacts on the society.

Consultancy Policy and Mechanism

Shiv Nadar University (SNU) extends to its academic staff the privilege of consulting with both public and private entities, whether national or international, because such activities can contribute to the professional development and stature of the faculty member, and thus may benefit the University as well as the faculty member. Such benefit may be, but is not limited to, enhancement of faculty professional expertise, establishing and maintaining professional contacts, associations and relationships, and developing opportunities for sponsored research. 'Consulting activity' is different from ‘Sponsored Research’, and is defined as professional work performed outside university auspices that is substantively related to a faculty member’s area of expertise and duties at the university.

Professional consulting is encouraged provided such activities present no conflicts of interest and are kept within 'reasonable' bounds. The primary safeguard is the requirement that the faculty member secure advance approval for consulting activities to ensure that the activity is beneficial to the University in that no conflicts of interest exist, no conflict with University duties and responsibilities is present, and the total amount of consulting by the faculty member is 'not excessive'.
