What's with India's poor global innovation rankings?
Nitin Dahad, has talked to experts around the world about India's position in tech, a topic that is the subject of his latest Opinion post at thenextsiliconvalley.com/opinion. Dahad, this online magazine's publisher, draws upon years of experiences in dealing with many notable figures tp bring insight and perspective to this important topic.
One of them is Gopichand Katragadda, managing director of General Electric’s John F. Welch Technology Center in Bangalore, who observes that “The results of the study [the global innovation index] point to the fact that, in India, the innovation ecosystem (input) is poor while the knowledge/creative output under the constraints is good. One interpretation of this is that we need better government measures on regulations, education and infrastructure to tap the demonstrated potential of talented people.”
In a stern warning, Katragadda says that if India does not get its act together on the innovation front, the country could lose the opportunity ‘to make this a century of Indian innovation, tapping into the brilliant technical minds of the region.’
