Consortium Concept & it’s Implementation
A mechanism to work with diversified group with focussed objectives
• Consortium approach- a new direction to research
(Public and Private Sector organizations came together)
• Identification of consortia partners challenge before the project
NAIP Consortia
• Selection of right Partners with real
interest, commitment and capabilities
ensured the successful implementation
• Lead Centres identified the partners
based on their own initiatives as well as
on the interest shown by the potential
partners.

Identification of Research Programme & Mode of Funding
Identification of research programme on priority areas
and demand driven
1. Sponsor and 2. Competitive Funding
Sponsored Mode towards the capacity development
to meet the fast changing requirements
Competitive Mode for high priority and demand
driven & open to PPP
Two step process for inviting, reviewing and approving
by various committees
The competitive mode provided a reform and transformation in the system and
build local capacity to compete for other national and international grants in
research financing.

NCs.
Component-wise progress report is further presented to
RPC/O&MPC
• The Annual Report of the sub-project prepared by CPI at Consortia
level and submitted to the Chairman, CAC. The annual workshop
of individual consortia is organised to discuss the report.
• The component-wise annual workshop of all consortia
• The Implementation Support Mission of the World Bank also
review the overall progress of NAIP at an interval of six months.
Implementation of Major Initiatives
• Learning & Capacity Building
• Digital Access to Library Resources of NARS
• Access to Latest Scientific Knowledge
• Development of Knowledge Products
• Create Business Culture throughout the NAARS

NAIP’s Role of Catalyzing Agent for Change in ICAR
ICAR introduced a number of innovations and changes in its
management
• Organisational change: Standard operating procedures in
the project identification, consortia formation, target setting,
timelines of delivery, being implemented.
• Envisioning and Foresight: Not only framed Vision 2030
document but a step further to envision foresight scenario
by 2050.
• Institution of Several Consortia Research Platforms
(CRPs)
• Administrative and Financial Management: A series of
administrative circulars were issued from time to time
towards decentralisation of administrative and financial
authority for timely flow of funds and successful
implementation of project. This new way of working has
now become a part of the NARS functioning.
NAIP’s Role of Catalyzing Agent for Change in ICAR
• Enabling Performance Monitoring through RFD: ICAR on
top in performance (consistent recognition of excellence in
performance as per GOI RFD (Results Framework
Document) metrics
• M & E: Various consortia advisory and implementation
committee in-built in the projects. Besides, Education
Division of ICAR implemented in the management of Niche
Area of Excellence programme.
• Mentoring and Capacity Building: Massive capacity
building opportunities including Scientific, Technical,
Administrative and Financial personnel inspired awareness
in timeliness of quality service and confidence to face
challenges and equip risk management options. A post of
ADG (HRM) has been created under ICAR to mainstream
this continuous exercise.
NAIP’s Role of Catalyzing Agent for Change in ICAR
• BPDU: Integrating inventors with entrepreneurs by B2B
model through BPDUs has contributed a new fillip in revenue
generation on account of technology commercialization from
NARS. The concept of BPD units being mainstreamed.
• AgIn: The ICAR created a corporate arm to commercialize
the various technologies, products and processes. Creation of
Agribusiness environment in NARS has been largely
catalysed by the Project
• Incentivisation of good performance by recognition through
merit certificate has spurred healthy competition.
• Knowledge creation and management through ICT
platforms and tools and introduction of open access policy
has brought out global visibility and recognition.
• Communication management has improved leading to
wider coverage of events and achievements of NARS by both
print and electronic media
NAIP’s Role of Catalyzing Agent for Change in ICAR
• Establishing and Networking of Agricultural Market Intelligence
Centres in India institutionalized enabling and empowering farmers and
entrepreneurs.
• High Performance Super-Computing, a State of the Art Facility,
ASHOKA (Advanced Super-computing Hub for OMICS Knowledge in
Agriculture) established in NARS
• Online examination facility and e-resources are some of the
examples of strengthening of the dimensions of infrastructure and
functions of NARS.
• Remodelling Financial & Procurement System has been
accomplished. Fiscal management utilizing the ICT tools is possible in
tracking the flow of funds and their timely utilization pre-empting
unattended parking of funds unlike in the past.
• Mainstreaming of several successful NAIP consortia such as CeRA, ePublishing, RKMP, BPDs, etc.
