Dear all,

Thank you for expressing an interest in our University. We understand the importance of all-round education of our students. So, by considering this, we start an Institution’s Innovation Councils in university by taking highly qualified and experience professor to create students ideas into reality.


Innovation is the simple term of converting ideas into new or modified products, process, services, etc. In innovation, it is all about taking inventions into a market by converting scientific knowledge into a new modified product, service, etc. for economic growth and also social development in a simple economic way.

Dr. Sandeep Petkar
Dean IIE

Ideas are generated in their mind during their study, especially during their lab work/project work. To capture these new ideas and converting into a reality, Institution Innovation Cell (IIC) plays a very crucial role. So, the research & innovation are the primary/first stage to do something new in their field in higher education institute under the guidance of their Professor

Hence, through the Innovation Cell, we will focus on creating and developing the Innovation culture from idea generation to pre– incubation, incubation and graduating from the incubator as successful start-ups and entrepreneurial ventures.

About Institution’s Innovation Council

GHRU has established an Institution’s Innovation Council with a purpose of systematically fostering the culture of innovation and research among the faculties and students.

As evolution & innovation is a continuous process, they directly impact on daily lives of human being. Our day-to-day living has become more technology oriented. In this regards innovation & research becomes an essential component for human development. So to fulfil student’s overall development, we have to focus more on technology and research oriented activity. IIC is linked with the other innovative research organization, which have made academic, social and industrial impact. It will function under a web of interconnected research centers and laboratories which focus on area such as agricultural research, engineering & technology, etc.

IIC Board of Governance

  • Dr. Sandeep Petkar : President, IIC
  • Mr. Dipak Deshpande : Vice President, IIC
  • Mr. Anoop Vishwakarma : Convener & NIRF Coordinator, IIC
  • Dr. Mustafizul Haque : ARIIA & Innovation Coordinator, IIC

Focus areas of IIC

The Research has no boundaries. We are focusing on some of the global issues and challenges by applying scientific me IIC functions under a web of interconnected research centers and laboratories, which serve in versatile focus areas such as Engineering and Technological research, Agricultural Science, Commerce, Management and Administration, Industrial legislation and Pharmaceutical Science. All these centers are designed to serve an industrial, Educational and Socio-economic development.


As per the guidelines of MoE's, Innovation Cell conduct Calendar Activity, MIC Driven Activity and Self-Driven Activity that gives various opportunities to the students and faculty members to interact with various university and explore there infra-structure and technical support to improve our educational quality and research work.

Under IIC, we organize IPR, Entrepreneurship, Startup, Incubation-Pre Incubation and Critical Thinking activity. With the help of these activities, we introduce our future requirements and need so that faculties & students could better understand challenges.

IIC Goal - Patents

Through our focus towards promoting social, economic and scientific development, we promote distinct inventions and novel scientific processes. Our comprehensive approach towards technical education has created platforms for our students and faculties to engineer and develop various technical solutions having immense social utility. It will result for the University having a significant number of patents.
