Deakin University, Australia, has forged a new research partnership with the Defence Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT), Pune.
A range of new collaborative research projects building on the strengths of both institutions will be explored under a memorandum of understanding signed by Deakin Vice-Chancellor Jane den Hollander and DIAT Vice Chancellor Prahlada in Hyderabad.
Jane den Hollander said Deakin was the first university in the world to set up an office in India. The Deakin-DIAT partnership is part of the Deakin India Research Initiative (DIRI), which aims to develop research models that bridge the gap between academia and industry.
“Just like Deakin University has a national presence in India, DIAT being the only Defence University in the country has a national presence interacting with all the entities of Ministry of Defence,” Prahlada said.
