The Collaborative Platform will connect the faculties, students, and researchers across different disciplines in the RCB and IIT Delhi.
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi, and Regional Centre for Biotechnology (RCB), Faridabad, will together initiate wide-ranging collaborations involving academic, research and human resource development, which will have a profound social and economic impact on the country.
The two institutions have signed an MoU to set up the RCB-IITD Collaborative Platform. Some of the initiatives on the cards are:
Welcoming the MoU, Prof. V. Ramgopal Rao, director, IIT Delhi, said: “IIT Delhi has invested about Rs 300 crore in the past 3-4 years to create Advance Central Research facilities on its main campus and the Sonipat campus in Haryana. We continue to invest in creating high-end research facilities under which a state of art Cryo-EM facility will be installed very soon. We invite RCB scientists to come and utilise these facilities at IIT Delhi.”
He also invited RCB Faridabad to utilise the incubation facilities available at IIT Delhi.
The collaborative platform will connect the faculties, students and researchers across different disciplines at RCB and IIT Delhi. They can develop specialised groups for academic and research, leading to cutting-edge innovations with the fruitful translational outcome.
Speaking of the MoU with IIT Delhi, Dr. Sudhanshu Vrati, executive director, RCB Faridabad, said: “This should encourage multidisciplinary research at the two institutions with the expertise of RCB faculty in biotech sciences and IIT Delhi in engineering and sciences.”
