Conclave on Industry – Academia Partnership
Confederation of Indian Industry (CII Northern Region), collaboration with Chandigarh Region Innovation & Knowledge Cluster (CRIKC) recently organized a program “Conclave on Industry – Academia Partnership” at the CII NR Headquarters on 7th July 2017.
Mr. VP Singh Badnore was Chief Guest on the occasion where Mr. Vikram Hans MD of brand Delta Power India addressed the gathering and shared his views as the guest speaker on ‘Amalgamating Industry-Academia Collaboration.’ He spoke about the symbiotic relation between the Industry and the Academic Institutes and the role that the two can play in building up Smart Cities.
Mr. Hans spoke about the mutually beneficial role that the two sectors can play to gain a higher social return. He said that we live in an innovation age in which the biggest increases in productivity will obviously come from technology and innovation. Interactions between academia and industry are lacking in India. The government spends merely a 0.8% of the GDP on R&D. He spoke about the need for accelerating research to further accomplish the ‘Made in India’ target. Smart City Applications are a huge part of this drive and Delta Power is working towards contributing positively towards that.
