Over 200 guests, including notable business and government executives, academics, and illustrious alumni, attended the NTU Singapore-India Dialogue session, which Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) sponsored on August 23 to encourage an exchange of ideas for partnership.
The event, which was held at The Leela Palace Hotel in Bengaluru, sought to consolidate and expand upon NTU Singapore’s current alliances with the nation’s top educational and research institutions that were established during Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic visit to NTU in 2018. The NTU Singapore-India Dialogue looked at important issues such as how education, research, and innovation are changing in a post-pandemic society and how Singapore and India may improve their current technopreneurship cooperation.
President Professor Subra Suresh said, “The visit of PM Modi to NTU Singapore in 2018 led to the establishment of agreements between the University and several premier institutions in India. The NTU Singapore-India Partnership Dialogue in Bengaluru seeks to encourage the exchange of ideas that would potentially lead to multi-disciplinary and multi-sector collaborations in education, research, and translation of scientific discoveries to practice. The NTU leadership team looks forward to exploring opportunities to work closely with academic collaborators, Indian industry partners, and entrepreneurs in areas and activities that are aligned with the NTU 2025 Strategic Plan.”
During Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Nanyang Technological University in 2018, five agreements were inked to expand collaborations between the university and industry in India. They included the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore for Research Attachment and Joint Supervision opportunities, and IIT Bombay and IIT Madras for Joint PhD programmes.
