India, Russia in general agreement for science, technology collaborationStaff writer ▼ | September 14, 2015
India and Russia are working together on a "general agreement" on collaboration in science and technology, which will enable the countries to exchange ideas on technology, scientists and students.
Science Secretary Ashutosh Sharma said:
“Also there are some joint collaborative projects between universities, between scientists, so they develop things together,” Sharma said.
Scientists and officials of the two countries discussed the matter during last week’s Russian-Indian Working Group on Science and Technology held in Moscow.
“It is not focussed on one particular technology, but all general exchange of information, scientists and technological know-how relating to energy, green technologies, super computing in big data,” the DST secretary said.
The two countries have entered into an agreement to set up the Russian-Indian Association of Universities. ■
