P&G in pact with IISc for Molecular Modeling

BY OUR TECH CORRESPONDENT

Bangalore, June 28, 2005: The US$ 51 billion Procter & Gamble has entered into a pact with Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, to foster collaboration in the area of Modeling for Chemical and Formulated Systems. 

Dr. Shekhar Mitra, Vice President, Research & Development, Procter & Gamble, presented a cheque for $100,000 to Prof. Goverdhan Mehta, Director, IISc, Bangalore in connection with this. The pact will help enhance R&D capability development with IISc to work on areas of mutual interest. 

Molecular modelling is a collection of techniques to model or mimic the behaviour of molecules. Molecular modeling has altered the way research is conducted. When results can be predicted before experiments are performed, experiments that have the highest probability of success can be chosen, potentially reducing the cost of research "P&G believes that India’s intellectual capital, technical and scientific expertise, and its world-class Centers of Excellence and Academic Institutions, create a unique potential to accelerate the Company’s global innovation capability. We are looking to leverage the most inspired minds of India – and the Indian Institute of Science is clearly top class," Dr. Arun Viswanath, who heads P&G Asia Connect & Develop, based in Bangalore, said in a release. 

"The Department of Chemical Engineering at IISc has great potential in the area of molecular modeling for chemical and formulated systems. We believe that this donation will enhance the capability of IISc in further harnessing this potential for societal benefits at large," Dr. Shekhar Mitra, Vice President, Research & Development, Procter & Gamble said in the press release.

Prof. Goverdhan Mehta, Director of the Indian Institute of Science said "The Indian Institute of Science is a premier research institution in the country, devoted to postgraduate teaching at the highest level and conducting advanced research in all branches of Science and Engineering and likes to forge linkages with like minded organizations to further the cause of scientific research in the country and overseas. We look forward to developing the partnership with a global R&D powerhouse such as P&G in the year ahead."

Currently, Procter & Gamble sources products and services such as raw and packaging material, R&D, engineering and Information Technology from India.
