BHILAI : Indian Institute of Technology, Bhilai, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), a German Academic Exchange Service, to further their mutual scientific interests and promote greater collaboration between both 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.

By signing this MoU, both institutions recognize the mutual value of academic and scientific cooperation among scientists from both countries and strive to build cordial relations between their students and researchers. The DAAD and IIT Bhilai’s bilateral exchange program aims to enhance collaboration between them and German universities or research institutions.

Speaking about the importance of this collaboration, Prof. Rajiv Prakash, Director, IIT Bhilai 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 expected outcomes of the collaboration will include:

  • 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.
  • Undertaking joint studies through mutually agreed modalities on issues of common interest.

Speaking about how this collaboration will help IIT Bhilai community, Prof. 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.”

The partnership between the IIT Bhilai and DAAD represents a significant milestone in fostering global scientific collaboration and this MoU symbolizes the Institute’s commitment to nurturing academic and research synergies across borders.
