Creating Innovation Ecosystems


MSME Industry Clusters



Innovation requires
collaboration & partnering



Getting Cluster to act as one
entity to attract interest &
economies of scale



Facilitating growth of
industry via new products,
processes, common
centres
,
startups creation

Pilot Challenges


Cluster Organizational Readiness


Representation readiness poles apart e.g. Moradabad vs. Faridabad


Innovation Program Execution


Funding disbursements & procedures make difficult to execute on
-
time


Pilots will end Sept
-
Nov timeframe from July target


Lack of Ministry support/interest


No “innovation” schemes, field
-
level unable to grasp essence of program


Our bandwidth to engage State
-
level participants is
low


Skills
at striking & maintaining win
-
win partnerships is tough in field


Business model and sustainability


CIC model too early to assess viability


University clusters


Although small sample size … unable to ID a “pull” effect, requires significant
financing and hand
-
holding reviews

Focus

Office of Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations

Scale Up (Part 1) in 2012

Industry Clusters


Expand existing pilot strategy given encouraging signs


CSIR as lead partner to develop 60
-
70 innovation clusters


Effort has begun, note established on approach (see handout), cluster
engagement & funding gaps to be determined, agreed to hire 2 BD personnel
for 6 month immersion program at
NInC


Post feedback the note will be sent for
NInC

approval via email


Start another Ministry effort


Min. of Textiles as lead partner has suggested 20
-
25 clusters collaboration


However determined these clusters are largely unorganized (and tough to
organize)


Start Sector
-
driven lead partner via professional sector organizations


Target 3
-
4 clusters



Office of Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations

Scale Up (Part 1) in 2012

Industry Clusters (cont’d)


Start State
-
driven lead partner via State Innovation Councils


Target 1
-
3 states


NInC

to complete program manual, case studies, best practices
and act as expert/facilitator with each lead partner. Can this
work? With existing staff BW @
NInC
?

University Clusters


Begin a sub
-
group at
NInC

to figure out next steps


Office of Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations

Scale Up (Part II)


High level proposal on scale
-
up strategy being developed
(initial draft


see handout)


Synergize with Planning Commission,
NInC

learnings

and other
Government agencies


National Innovation Cluster Policy and implementation through new or
existing Agency


Accept that “policy” should occur after “incubation in the field”
to increase our success rates of programs


Especially true for approaches that require cross
-
functional, cross
-
ministry effort (e.g. Backbone org for manufacturing)
