IISc, IIM-B join Forces
Two premiere institutes, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and the Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore (IIM-B), have forged a unique partnership that involves virtual classrooms, a regular exchange of students and faculty, and the management of intellectual property.
An MoU signed between the two institutes on Wednesday seeks to create closer academic collaboration.
P. Balaram, Director of IISc, and Pankaj Chandra, Director of IIMB, “see the need for closer ties between these institutes to bring innovations in science closer to society, and thus make Jamsetji Tata’s dream a reality,” the statement said.
“In this technology-driven age, such collaborations are crucial for development as academic research benefits society when converted into entrepreneurial opportunities,” said Prof. Chandra.
