Impact of Indian sponsored projects on research performance
Fourteen Indian research funding agencies have been studied to know their impact on research in India. Natural Language Processing (NLP) was used to segregate and identify the funding acknowledgment from data available in Scopus. SciVal, an analytical tool was used to analyze the data. Tableau software was used to visualize the analyzed data. The impact of 10 years of funding by the 14 funding agencies reveals the consistency of publication output. The number of funded publications addressing the 16 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is very few. The study result indicates the need for a policy change among funding sponsors while considering the high priority areas. It highlights the necessity of considering 16 SDG while funding. The outcome of this study can be used for policy discussions in the promotion of Industry-Institutional collaborative funding and research and policy changes in funding the high priority areas of 16 SDGs in promoting collaborative research and infrastructure.
