IIT Bhilai, German Academic Exchange Service collaborate to strengthen research, bilateral ties
The institutes said researchers may practice in any discipline or subject area and can visit the partner institution for up to three months.
NEW DELHI: The Indian Institute of Technology Bhilai (IIT Bhilai) collaborate with Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), a German Academic Exchange Service, to strengthen the bilateral ties between countries.
“The German Academic Exchange Service is the largest German support organization in international academic cooperation, and its collaboration with IIT Bhilai will enable a greater flow of information and key scientific knowledge,” the official statement said.
Both the institutions aim to enhance collaboration between them and German universities or research institutions.
On the occasion, IIT Bhilai director Rajiv Prakash said: “This collaboration will lead to the two-way transfer of knowledge and will strengthen our research collaborations.”
Under this partnership, reciprocal visits will be conducted, with up to three faculty members from IIT Bhilai traveling to German universities, and faculty from Germany visiting India for a research stay, which will also include lecturing activities.
The researchers may practice in any discipline or subject area and can visit the partner institution for up to three months.
The universities expect that the collaboration will contribute to “greater crossflow across countries and universities to boost knowledge-sharing and increase awareness of key issues and topics”.
“Finding solutions to real-world problems by discussing new perspectives and allowing students in classrooms to gain better insights from faculty around the world,” is another expected outcome of the agreement, the institute said.
The institutes will also undertake joint studies through mutually agreed modalities on issues of common interest.
Prakash added, “The faculty members of IIT Bhilai will have hands-on exposure to the technologies and research happening in the world and implementing these skills to the classroom teaching will broaden the vision of the IIT Bhilai students.”
