Honey Bee Network

Committing to three basic principles:

What ever is learned from people must be shared back with them in their language and in the manner that they can understand

The innovators should not become anonymous, their identity must be acknowledged and given due recognition, respect and reward

If any income, wealth or monetary incentive is generated through diffusion of innovation or any other activity related to it, a fair part must be shared back with knowledge and insight provider


Honey Bee Network

SRISTI:

SRISTI (Society for Research & Initiatives for Sustainable Technologies & Institutions) was set up in 1993 to provide organizational support to Honey Bee network.

Objectives are:

Systematically documenting, disseminating and developing grassroots green innovations, providing intellectual property rights protection to grassroots innovators, working on the in situ and ex situ conservation of local biodiversity, and associated traditional and contemporary knowledge systems, building database of technological, educational and institutional (particularly indigenous common property resource institutions) innovations, and providing venture support to grassroots innovators.

Value Addition & Incubation Support:

  •  In year March 2000, Government of India, recognized the efforts of Honey Bee Network and helped setting up National Innovation Foundation (www.nifindia.org).

  • NIF intends to upscale the model across the country and help set up GIANs for Venture assistance.

  • GIAN Gujarat (now GIAN-West) ( www.gian.org ) was set up in 1997 as an incubator for grassroots green innovations, NIF is setting up more GIANs across the country for Valorization of innovations. As of now three new Incubators have been set up GIAN-North East, GIAN-North & GIAN-South

Institutionalizing Innovative culture in India

The Indian Governments Union Budget of 1999 included the announcement for setting up of the National Innovation Foundation (NIF). The purpose was to build National register of inventions and innovations and outstanding traditional knowledge, support value addition research by scientists as well as innovators at grassroots level, setting up incubators to convert innovations into products and enterprises and eventually make India a global leader in sustainable technologies.

NIF was set up by Department of Science and Technology in March 2000 at Ahmedabad to achieve its goals essentially through a non-governmental spirit and by drawing upon the Honey Bee network and its collaborating partners.

  • Objectives of NIF:

  • To help India become an innovative and creative society and a global leader in sustainable technologies by scouting, spawning and sustaining grassroots innovations.

  • To ensure evolution and diffusion of green grassroots innovations in a selective, time-bound and mission-oriented basis so as to meet the socio-economic and environmental needs of our society.

  • To provide institutional support in scouting, spawning, sustaining, and scaling up grassroots green innovations as well as outstanding traditional knowledge and helping their transition to self-supporting activities. It seeks self-reliance through competitive advantage of innovation-based enterprises and/or application of people-generated sustainable technologies at grassroots level. NIF would be helping set up GIANs for providing incubation and venture development support.

GIAN:

  • Grassroots Innovations Augmentation Networks (GIANs) have been established with the primary objective to link up innovations, investment and enterprise. The transition of an innovation into product and later into enterprise requires input of formal science & technology, design, handholding support for project planning and management, finance and marketing intelligence. Four GIANs namely the GIAN-West, GIAN-North, GIAN-South and GIAN-NE provide support for grassroots innovations/traditional knowledge of the respective regions.
