The National Innovation Foundation (NIF) – India, set up by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), is built on the philosophy akin to the behaviour of a honey bee. NIF has taken major initiatives to serve the knowledge-rich but economically poor people of the country. It is committed to making India innovative by documenting, adding value, protecting the intellectual property rights (IPR) of the contemporary unaided technological innovators as well as of outstanding traditional knowledge-holders and disseminating their innovations on commercial and non-commercial basis.
