As many as 19 members from Industrial Associates of IIT Ropar and about 25 members from other industries were present at the event.


Speaking on the occasion, Prof. Das said, “The current stage of industry‐academia linkages in India  is still quite nascent. We have to look out that a more sustaining and long term structural plan for continuous development that would serve to be mutually beneficial for the industrial sector as well as the academic research driven sector of India. The objective of this conclave is to emphasise the significance of enhancing academia-industry collaboration for augmenting research, innovation, employability and greater productivity through various measures.”


The meeting included discussion on various topics like recognition of industrial projects at par with published papers, research grants, additional funding and industrial participation. The discussions also revolved around how each department should encourage participation through industrial visits to campus, industrial workshops, meetings, lecture series etc. which will reduce the gap between industry and academia. The meeting addressed issues of how industry and academia can collaborate and come up with policies and work towards solutions to existing issues. An industrial policy draft will be presented by the institute as an outcome of this meeting. The meeting touched upon the importance of ‘Make in India’ and how industry and academia can collaborate and contribute to this national policy of the Government of India (GoI).
