IIT Kharagpur to set up Common Research and Technology Development Hub

Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT-KGP) will set up a research and technology development hub, called the Common Research and Technology Development Hub (CRTDH). The hub will be focusing on making healthcare more affordable and tap the potential of MSMEs in the medical sector. 

Supported by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), the hub will address the issues of accessibility and affordability challenging the modern healthcare system through technological innovations.

Satadal Saha, Visiting Professor, School of Medical Science and Technology, IIT-KGP, said, "Another key area of focus will be supporting growth and development of precision manufacturing of innovative technologies through MSMEs, so that India can reduce its massive burden of imported healthcare technologies."

"The access to quality primary healthcare remains a major challenge in rural parts of India, with over 80 percent of healthcare technology being imported, escalating costs. Also, the concentration of leading healthcare units being in urban areas leads to accessibility issues," Saha added.

Suman Chakraborty, Associate Dean, Sponsored Research and Industrial Consultancy, IIT-KGP, stated, "We will endeavour to build capacity within the MSMEs to enable it to manufacture high-quality products that can compete in the global market."
