Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and Regional Centre for Biotechnology (RCB) Faridabad have signed an MoU to establish ‘RCB-IITD Collaborative Platform’ for initiating wide-ranging collaborations involving academic, research, and human resource development, which will have a profound social and economic impact for the country.
Under the MoU, both institutions will collaborate:
Welcoming the MoU with RCB, Prof V Ramgopal Rao, Director, IIT Delhi, said, “IIT Delhi has invested about Rs 300 crore in last 3-4 years to create Advance Central Research facilities on its main campus and 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 in the RCB and IIT Delhi. They can develop specialised groups for academic and research, leading to cutting-edge innovations with the fruitful translational outcome.
