This research was founded to provide insight into globalization of multinationals’ R&D resources with focus on India. The founding team brings 21+ yrs of US R&D management experience.

Today, more than 100 multinationals have active R&D centres in India. But the India R&D story is just starting to unfold as many more companies are currently either evaluating an India Centre or are in the process of setting one up. Once you decide to set up an India Centre, the next big question is where? Which Indian cities are the front-runners in terms of access to people, infrastructure, and overall cost?

This report investigates Ten Indian Cities using five key criteria as drivers and inhibitors. Each of these criteria is further researched through multiple sub criteria. Utilizing a quantitative analysis, this report provides an objective basis for scoring and ranking the cities. Our geometric ranking model is shown to be more sensitive than the weighted arithmetic ranking used in other reports.

This report builds on our experience with Chemical, Materials, Pharmaceuticals & Agro-chemicals R&D Centres and an extensive knowledge of Indian cities READ MORE >
