About CSIR Diamond Jubilee Technology Award (CDJTA) 2020

Introduction

 

With the objective to foster technological innovation based on innovative science, CSIR launched an annual Diamond Jubilee Technology Award on 26th September 2002 in commemoration of its Diamond Jubilee celebrations. It was launched in recognition that mere investments in creating enabling infrastructure and support systems are not sufficient for achieving cutting-edge technological breakthroughs. Continuous encouragement and motivational nourishment need to be provided to potential inventors and innovators to unleash and realize their creative potential. Besides, those who succeed in giving outstanding performance need to be honoured by the nation.

 

The award is to encourage scientists, engineers and technologists to develop innovative technologies and products that are amongst the best in the world and enhance India’s image. Technologies leading to commercially successful products, processes and services, which give India a sustainable competitive advantage, are considered for the award. Besides the technological innovation must simultaneously help broaden interactions among academic, R&D and financial institutions and industry and commercial sectors, and provide newer vehicles for commercialization.

 

The Award is intended for scientific discovery or technological innovations, which have reached the market place. It is given annually to a technology that is developed in the country by Indian innovators and meets the highest global standards.
