The MSU held a round table of rectors from the leading universities of Russia and India, where they discussed prospects for the development of inter-university cooperation, and the creation of a Russian-Indian Association of Universities.
This Association would bring together the leading universities of Russia and India in the interests of solving social, scientific, and technological issues. This primarily means the development of academic mobility for students and teachers, the development of joint educational programs, joint laboratories, organization of scientific conferences, and joint research. The national coordinator on the Russian side will be the Tomsk State University, and on the Indian side – the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai.
“Russia and India have well-developed educational systems, and are among the few countries in the world with the capacity to conduct research on a wide range of fundamental and applied issues,” said Dmitry Livanov, Minister of Education and Science.
By the way, since 1991, more than 4,000 students from India have graduated from Russian universities. A total of 182 joint projects have implemented in the scientific field since 2008.
