Title: Sources for procurement research grants

Sources for procurement research grants
international agencies, Government and
private bodies.
  • Research funding is a term generally covering any
    funding for scientific research, in the areas of
    both "hard" science and technology and social
  • Sources of research funding,
  • corporations
  • government
  • Some small amounts of scientific research are
    carried out by charitable foundations.
  • Total research funding in most developed
    countries is between 1.5 and 3 of GDP

Government-funded research
  • Many governments of developed countries provide
    considerable funds for scientific research as
    well as social science research.
  • Much of this is not intended to provide concrete
    results that may be commercialisable, although
    research in scientific fields may lead to results
    that have such potential.
  • Most university research is aimed at gaining
    publication in peer reviewed academic journals.

  • Government-funded research allows basic science.
  • Government-funded research into such matters as
    the nature of quantum mechanics or the existence
    of water on Mars.
  • For example, Decades of research into quantum
    mechanics have made possible work on quantum
    computing, which is now expected to be an even
    greater leap forward in computing technology than
    the development of the microchip.

Corporate And Private Research
  • In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, most
    scientific and technological research was carried
    out by individual inventors using their own
  • A system of patents was developed to allow
    inventors a period of time to commercialize their
    inventions and recoup a profit, although in
    practice many found this difficult.
  • In the twentieth century, scientific and
    technological research became increasingly
    systematized, as corporations developed, and
    discovered that continuous investment in research
    and development could be a key element of success
    in a competitive strategy.
  • Privately-funded research is profit oriented.

  • The All India Council for Technical Education
    (AICTE) is a Statutory Body established by the
    Government of India through Act No. 52 of 1987
    with a view to proper planning and coordinated
    development of Technical Education (TE) system
    throughout the Country.
  • Technical Education includes the fields of
    Engineering, Technology, Architecture, Town
    Planning, Management, Hotel Management Catering
    Technology, Pharmacy and Applied Arts Crafts.
