Industry Collaboration

This relationship necessitates some collaboration as the producer (academia) has to ensure that the output satisfies the needs of the consumer (industry) to a large extent, and vice versa. Hence, one form of collaboration, which is more in the nature of a feedback loop, is for the industry to provide inputs back to the academic institutions regarding their perception or evaluation of their products (students).

One of the core competencies of academic institutions is teaching. Many institutes, who are engaged in education at high end, have the wherewithal to provide training for high-end manpower development in topics relevant to industry. Therefore, a natural collaboration is possible for the institutes to conduct training in various topics of interest for the industry.

In a world driven by Intellectual Property, there is an increased interest in research collaboration. Though academicians in most good institutes engage in Research, collaboration is only possible when industry has a need for the same. Though the goal of research is to create new knowledge, industry wants to utilize this to create products and generate revenue. Today academic institutions are conducting both basic and applied researches; the latter is of greater interest to industry.

Industry skill development program aims at linking education system to Industry. The learning model connects the four spokes of individuals & institutions to industry and knowledge bodies.
