Academia Industry

Reasonably good collaboration..



Manpower creation

Diagnostics and proof checking



Technical advice and guidance



Academia Industry

Needs to be strengthened..



Customized training at entry level



Regular training/retraining



System design and analysis



Process design and development



Product design and development



Software verification




Technology transfer



Academia Industry

How?




Academics to be sensitized to the needs of


the Industry



Industry to understand and respect the


limitations of academics



Industry to treat academic institutions as


extension of their R&D team rather than


‘contractors’.



Academia Industry



Industry set up
and maintain

specialised


laboratories in their area of interest in


academic Institutions




Industrial design aspects to be taken care


of by Industry




Provide for R&D spending on a sustained


basis rather than as fire fighting measures




Request to the Industry:

Academia Industry



Respect and recognition for applied


research



Recognise the importance and modalities


of team effort.



Try and involve “Pure Academics” in


Industrial interaction



Industrial consultancy to be treated as


“academic work”


Request to Academics:
