NEW DELHI, FEB16: Macquarie University, Australia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Broadband India Forum (BIF) and O P Jindal Global University (JGU) to collaborate over a wide range of academic and research activities and initiatives.

The collaboration with Broadband India Forum (BIF) focuses on cybersecurity and business ethics. This collaboration will also include joint research, publications, staff exchange and internships for Macquarie University students. Research is on high priority for both institutions and the focus will revolve around spectrum management (5G), wireless and telecommunication, IoT and cybersecurity.

Speaking on MU’s partnership with BIF, Nicole Brigg, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International), Macquarie University said, “Macquarie University is a research-intensive university and it is at our core to partner with thought leaders in priority countries such as India. Broadband India Forum’s research aligns well with Macquarie’s Faculty of Science and Engineering particularly in the areas involving telecommunications where Macquarie has established itself as a world leader. We look forward to the exchange of ideas and experts with BIF and hope the relationship will also benefit Macquarie’s existing students who may have an opportunity to undertake an internship in India through this partnership.”

The collaboration with JGU focuses on articulation, exchange and research partnership. The main focus of the partnership is to develop closer ties between the business and management faculty at both institutions and bring them together to deliver joint lectures, conferences, short-term programs and workshops.

Speaking on MU’s partnership with JGU, Professor Stephen Brammer, Executive Dean, Faculty of Business and Economics, Macquarie University said, “O P Jindal Global University is a strategic partner for Macquarie University, mainly for its Faculty of Business and Economics. There are various areas of synergy between the two universities and we are looking forward to building a robust partnership. We are fortunate to have Macquarie champions at O P Jindal University as Professors who we expect will be the conduit between the two partners. Our immediate goal is to establish research links and encourage staff and student exchange between the two universities”.
