GITAM (Deemed to be University), a NAAC A++ accredited university, inaugurated the DST GITAM Technology Enabling Centre (G-TEC) at its Visakhapatnam campus and will be the first-ever such centre set up in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The university recently received a grant of Rs 3.28 crores from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) for this purpose.

G-TEC will focus on identifying new-age technologies and making them available in the market; market assessment of technologies required for industries in Andhra Pradesh; and refining technologies by networking with various Technology Development Labs. GITAM has engaged third-party organisations to conduct market research — in disciplinary function units of Life Sciences, Engineering and Physical Sciences — to identify challenges faced from a business perspective and potential solutions to solve them. In parallel, G-TEC teams would assess technologies being developed by colleges and universities. The project is a conscious effort to bridge the industry-academia gap and to provide an enabling ecosystem for faculty innovators and MSMEs in the southern state.

G-TEC will also provide advisory services including assistance with research, connecting research expertise with industry partners and capacity building programs for an efficient workforce.

Prof Raja P Pappu, Coordinator-G-TEC, Director, Research & Development, GITAM (Deemed to be University) said,  “By uniting industry, academia, and research communities through the GITAM Technology Enabling Centre, we envision a future where innovation flourishes, bottlenecks are overcome, and India, along with Andhra Pradesh, emerges as a global leader in the realm of research and development.”
