Technology Business Incubators

Prelude

Savli BT ParkThe Government of Gujarat through its nodal agency Gujarat State Biotechnology Mission (GSBTM) & Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) aims to develop a geographic concentration/ Biotech Cluster by facilitating the development of bioscience enterprises in State and, thereby create new jobs, investment opportunities, support infrastructure etc for the benefit of society at large. Such a geographic concentration/ cluster of life sciences companies, research institutions, and other amenities of scientific & general purpose would endeavour to address the biotech industry’s need for specialized infrastructure and thereby encourage new biotech enterprises, drive life sciences research, accelerate commercialization of new technologies, enable biotech organisations to forge alliances and enhance competitiveness of biotech companies located in the State.

Technology Business Incubators of world-class standards have been envisaged in proximity to an academia of repute and right admist a very vibrant Biotech cluster of Vadodara.

Biotechnology Savli Park Incubator for ResearchThe Government aims to develop a geographic concentration/ Biotech Cluster by facilitating the development of bioscience enterprises in State and, thereby create new jobs, investment opportunities, support infrastructure etc for the benefit of society at large. The park would be a geographic concentration/ cluster of life sciences companies, research institutions, and other amenities of scientific & general purpose.

Biotechnology Savli Park Incubator for ResearchThe Innovation Arcade has been envisaged to house the Common Equipment Library and incubate Biotech Technologies and Biotech Businesses.

An in-principle approval has been accorded by the Government to the Incubator Concept.

A committee of Experts consisting of representatives from Research, Industry, etc. having experience of developing such facilities was formed and the same committee has over several discussions, meetings, etc. has finalized the Technical Design/content of the Technology Business Incubator.

The BT-TBI shall be an ideal place for new spin-offs, start-ups, MSMEs as well as larger units to experiment newer biotech ideas in rented labs and/or Pilot plant & such similar facilities.

Prologue

Innovation, application based research is focus in 12th Five year plan document. Dept. of Biotechnology [DBT], Govt. of India [GoI] as well as Dept. of Science & Technology [DST], Govt. of Gujarat [GoG] is focusing on innovation, high intensity of application based research and its delivery to society through commercial applications.

Biotechnology, is dependent on research, application based research and its incubation into technology / product and commercialization, it needs whole ecosystem – at academic level (university / research institute), industry level, in public sector & private sector, it needs whole chain of enabling system - infrastructure (research labs, equipment), support services (mentoring, technology screening, evaluation, IPR, stakeholder linkages), finances (grant, loans, etc). DBT has conceptualized a National Grid for Biotech Incubation Centers – facilitating application based research / product / technology development. DBT vide its implementing arm – Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council [BIRAC] has approved the Proposal of GSBTM to develop a Bio-Incubator at Savli Biotech Park to address the biotech industry’s need for specialized infrastructure and thereby encourage new biotech enterprises and accelerate commercialization of new technologies in the state.

Objectives

Gujarat has strong presence of life science based industries – Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Agriculture, etc. For higher productivity, cost effective, energy saving options, wider product range, industries need new products/ technology, skills, capability, mind set and environment, This needs strong R & D pipeline, networking of stakeholders, culture and mechanism for application based research, Biotech incubator will provide a stepping stone, will provide national networking.
