Science   Secretary Ashutosh Sharma said:
“It’s a general agreement related to collaboration in science and technology. This is in the form of exchange of scientists, students and technologies,” Department of Science and Technology (DST) 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.
