Funding R&D

India is in the cusp of emergence of several small companies, start-ups and academia in niche areas opening new doors for positioning India on global Digi-com technology landscape. The brimming start-up ecosystem is an added strength of the 6G technology initiative. During various activities such as supply-base assessment carried out by DoT a few years back, it reflects competencies across industry and academia (indigenous 5G Testbed) to firmly believe that with suitable and sufficient funding, policy handholding will enable Indian players to play an important role in global partnerships in 6G and beyond programs with significant value add in global value chain.

Objectives of 6G R&D funding

  • To promote the ecosystem for research, design, prototyping, development, proof of concept testing, IPR creation, field testing, security, certification and manufacturing;

  • To develop and establish relevant standards to meet national requirements and enable their standardization in international standardization bodies;

  • To enable proliferation of affordable broadband and mobile services

  • Positioning state of the art communication technologies for rural and remote areas to bridge digital divide.

  • To create synergies among the Academia, Research Institutes, Start-ups and Industry for capacity building and development of telecom ecosystem through outreach to build relevant technologies and solutions

  • To bridge the gap between R&D and commercialization of products and solutions

  • Commercialization of developed technologies for domestic and global markets.

  • To build competency base for beyond 6G communication technologies.

  • Facilitate early trials and prototype development, aimed at developing proof-of-concepts and support the domestic manufacturing process.

  • Take a lead in preparing well defined measurable KPIs to assess the success of these program funding.
