Universities of India Conclave launched

Universities of India Conclave launched

It is a platform to improve education system in India and shape the future of emerging India as Knowledge Super Power by 2020.

Over 75 Vice Chancellors and Directors have gathered to deliberate along with industry representations the way forward to transform India to be the Knowledge Hub of the 21st Century.

Arun Bharat Ram, Past President Confederation of Indian Industry, Chairman (CII) Education Council and   Chairman SRF Ltd, inaugurated the event and  launched the official website  www.universitiesofindia.org.

Speaking on the occasion, Ram said that education Institutions must be agile and be able to adapt to the changing environment, update curriculum, be in the forefront of research and knowledge creation and ensure that the students are job ready.

He however observed that this has not been the case in most educational institutions. Drawing a parallel between the spectrum auction which recently netted the Government Rs 67000 thousand crores and knowledge, he pointed out that knowledge has wealth hidden in it, it only has to be recognized.

The Confederation of Indian Industry has already conducted five editions of the University Industry Symposia as annual events in partnership with Association of Indian Universities (AIU).

The outcome of the fifth University Industry Council was the CII – Nagaland University Business Development Centre, which was formally announced at this forum.  

The conclave is being organised by Bangalore-based Mindlogicx Infotech Ltd, an R & D based Technology Company, in association with CII & AIU (Association of Indian Universities). AIU is an organisation based in Delhi to evaluate the courses, syllabi, standard and credits of foreign Universities.
