Synergizing Academia-Industry Towards Skilling and Transforming India
Federation for World Academics (FWA) is proud to announce a One day National Conclave on “Synergizing Academia- Industry Towards Skilling and Transforming India” on November 4, 2017 at Le-Meridien, New Delhi.
This is an attempt by an academic body of the professionals from premier institutions in higher education to organize conclave where more than 50 vice chancellors, directors and other senior academicians are invited to share their knowledge, experiences about the challenges and opportunities in Indian Higher Education System. Indeed the higher education sector in India is going through an unprecedented challenge an example of which is closure of more than 250 engineering colleges, inability of the management institutions to fill their full quota of seats, withdrawal of job offers by the companies who picked up students from campus and so on.
It is imperative that in these circumstances that are challenging the very existence of cerian academic institutions that we huddle together to understand the issues confronting us and identify short and medium terms solutions to deal with them.
Similarly, the industry is also confronting various issues that include slower growth/expansion, constricted profit margins, changing business landscape and paucity in availability of quality potential employees form academic institutions.
It is but natural that no solution will emerge if the two sides, academia and industry, grapple with these issues plaguing them in isolation. They need to sit together to jointly work and identify issues and come up with workable solutions.
FWA is a platform where higher education academic challenges are discussed among academic leaders as well as with industry leaders. It also extends the effort to awaken the government and bureaucrats for current challenges and possible feedback in higher education.
Participants in the Conclave:
Senior representatives of NASSCOM, NSDC, CII, PHDCCI, AICTE, Vice Chancellors, Directors and other invited senior professors and research scholars. Top Industry leaders, Bureaucrats and Government Secretaries, Higher Education Students, Entrepreneurs and Edupreneurs.
