IMTMA-Industry Innovation Collaboration

Research and Development is an integral part of both the industry and educational institutions. On most of the occasion, they work independently and an attempt to bring both of these together is the IIIC initiative. The IMTMA-Institute Innovation Collaboration (III-C) hopes to bring industries and institutes willing to work on R&D projects on to a common platform

The idea is to address problems like…
  • Industry wants to outsource R&D in a particular area to an institute but has no idea which institute has knowledge in this area.
  • An institute is doing a lot of work in a particular area, wants to collaborate with industry to commercialize its knowledge or do industry-related R&D projects, but has no idea which industries need its expertise.

As the name suggests, this initiative is an attempt to create awareness about the latest developments in the manufacturing industry. The Jagruti – IMTMA Youth Program, is held during IMTEX with the help of UDAAN members. Under this, the engineering students, who are nominated by the colleges, visit the machine tool exhibition. IMTMA on its part bears all their expenses and also provides them a guided tour of the exhibition. The idea is to familiarize the engineering students with the machine tool industry and the technological developments in the industry segment.


As IMTEX attracts some of the industry experts, this awareness programme allows the mechanical and engineering students to interact with them. This is a unique opportunity for the future builders of the country to understand the available opportunities and gather knowledge about the manufacturing industry. This is also a golden opportunity for the students to pick on the brains of some of the best in the industry and imbibe those qualities, which will be crucial for their future.
