The topic of my dissertation is “R&D Patents and Innovation in India: A study of the manufacturing sector of India”. The key issues that I worked on are the following:

  • Empirical analysis of the relationship between R&D investment and patents for a panel of Indian firms – a production function approach.
  • Primary survey-based investigation into the effectiveness of patents as an appropriability mechanism
  • Empirical analysis of the relation between Patents and firm market value
