International Relations Office at IIT Bombay along with signing new agreements also conducts research workshops with various institutes / organizations across the globe. The research workshops form the groundwork to strengthen the collaborations between two institutes / organizations. The main motive of these research workshops is to identify collaborators with common research areas and take ahead the collaboration with a joint research student so that it is more sustainable. The following are the joint research workshops conducted in recent past:
IIT Bombay conducted a one-day research workshop with Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore on January 28, 2019 at the DD's Conference Room on the 1st Floor, Main Building. This workshop have been participated by the professors from various departments of IIT Bombay i.e., Metallurgical Engineering & Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Biosciences and Bioengineering, Centre for Technology Alternatives for Rural Areas, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering. IIT Bombay professors interacted with the counterparts from NTU with professors from both the sides giving their research talks and explored possibilities of collaboration.
This one day workshop was conducted at IIT Bombay where professors from Department of Earth Sciences, Civil Engineering, and Biosciences and Bioengineering participated. Faculty members from both institutes gave technical talks on their ongoing research areas to further find common interests for future collaboration. Followed by this was discussion on the proposed dual degree agreement and student exchange agreement between the two institutes. Both the universities showed interest to collaborate by supervising Ph.D. students and research work and publication through combined research projects.
This one day workshop was conducted at IIT Bombay and had professors participating from basic sciences i.e., Department of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. The group was divided department-wise where professors in each group gave their technical talks and interacted with respective counter parts to explore potential collaboration. At the end of the workshop, various ideas on way forward to taking ahead the recent Joint Doctoral Degree Programme agreement signed by IITB and NTU were discussed by both the leaders.
This two day workshop was conducted at NTU, Taiwan which started with the introductory talk on IIT Bombay and NTU from the respective leaders of the institutes followed by research presentations from professors of Electrical Engineering department of both the institutes. This workshop also had the NTU students participating. The major motive behind organizing this workshop was to strengthen the collaboration of the two institutions for eventually facilitating the existing MoU and the proposed dual degree program. The signing of this agreement is in process.
