The Union Cabinet has approved the constitution of an Empowered Technology Group (ETG) with the Principal Scientific Adviser to Government of India as its Chair. One of the key objectives of the ETG is to maintain an updated map of technology and technology products available and/or being developed across India. In view of this, the ETG has inter-alia “developed a digital catalogue of all the technologies and technology products developed by all public Sector Enterprises and R&D Organizations, including Transfer of Technology from foreign countries”.
Guidelines: Registration of Users and Booking of R&D Facilities which are Geographically Dispersed.
Guidelines for Institutions
Guidelines for adding new Technology/Product in Digital Catalogue
Monthly report submission format (by the Institution)

I-STEM: Linking Researchers and Resources
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work.
