"Enabling Innovations in Science and Technology"

The Society for Innovation and Development (SID) was founded in the year 1991, in close collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore. IISc is premier research institute which has contributed in a significant way towards the scientific and technological growth of the country as well as producing outstanding intellectuals to manage Industries, Business houses, and Institutions.

The mission of SID is to enable Innovations in science and technology by creating a purposeful and effective channel to help and assist industries and business establishments to compete and prosper in the face of global competition, turbulent market conditions, and fast moving technologies. SID strives to bring the leading intellectuals of IISc and the fruits of their research and development efforts closer to industries and business establishments in a cordial way with prosperity of the Nation as the ultimate goal.

SID is a society registered under the Karnataka Societies Act, with a symbiotic relationship with IISc. It primarily draws from and provides access to the intellectual and infrastructural resources of IISc.

SID undertakes research and development projects based on individual or joint proposals from the faculty and scientists of IISc in collaboration with industries, business establishments, and national and international organizations. Such organizations are welcome to enter into an agreement through SID with an intention to collaborate with IISc Departments to sponsor research projects.

SID has set up program units which are workgroups in identified areas that can undertake activities on a sustained basis. These units undertake multiple projects with varying degrees of flexibility to facilitate and expedite execution of the project.

SID promotes joint R & D programmes and R & D centres between IISc and National and International organizations.
