Open Innovation

Innovation and Sony Research India have an inseparable synergy and we look to be a catalyst to the massive research trends in India. Sony Research India wishes to create the best of innovations, anchoring the young talented minds to pioneer the research of their dreams. Sony Research India is committed to promote Open Innovation in India by fostering partnerships with university faculty and researchers. This has enabled Sony to establish lasting synergies and establish initiatives to innovate technologies from India and nurture Indian research talent. We have funded multiple projects and collaborated with top tier Indian universities including IITs and IISc for cutting-edge academic research which has established a strong rapport and camaraderie between the faculty and Sony’s researchers. This is significantly benefiting the young researchers to learn and explore their creativity endlessly.
