Innovation in Medical Technology to Go-To-Market :
Johari Digital Healthcare inaugurated the ‘Johari Center of Excellence’ in IIT Jodhpur Technology Park on 3rd January 2022
Most research and innovations from Academia end up in publications or are shelved, but now with Industry and academia collaboration it will have chance to get converted into a real product through engineering and transfer to manufacturing cycle along with required regulatory compliances.
Johari Digital Healthcare Ltd. (JDHL) inaugurated the Johari Centre of Excellence (CoE) at the IIT Jodhpur Technology Park on Monday, 3rd January, 2022. The grand inauguration was done in the presence of esteemed guests including Prof. Santanu Chaudhury, Director, IIT Jodhpur, Prof. Sampat Raj Vadera, Deputy Director, IIT Jodhpur, Mr. Satyendra Johari & Mrs. Nisha Johari, Founders, Johari Digital Healthcare Ltd. and other dignitaries.
Mr. Satyendra Johari, CEO & Founder, Johari Digital (JDHL) said it is a win-win situation for both JDHL and IIT Jodhpur. This collaboration will enable core research into innovations for world-class product development in the country. The R&D needs lots of efforts before the product gets into commercialization with complete quality controls and Johari Digital can play an important role to bridge the gap.
Mrs. Nisha Johari, Co-founder, Johari Digital, shared that having such a CoE would provide an opportunity to the budding engineers to be absorbed for world class product development within the country and can help reduce the brain drain from premium institutes like IIT. Through this venture we look forward to a great future.
At this occasion, Prof. Santanu Chaudhury (Director, IITJ) expressed his happiness for this initiative and mentioned that there are several emerging technologies coming up at IIT Jodhpur potentially in different spaces. Some of these technologies are in the space of electronics as well as mechanical applications where joining hands with Johari will bring a set of products through this collaboration which will be conceptualized, indigenously developed and engineered so as to bring up products of Indian origin. This CoE will lead to the development of products which have originated from India, the entire IP as well as the manufacturing capability will also be with India. For a new IIT like IIT Jodhpur this alliance with a Global player like Johari in Jodhpur has a huge value. This will nucleate a MedTech industrial ecosystem in the country.
