IIT-Kharagpur (KGP) has collaborated with REDOC SPI, a French network of doctoral schools, to strengthen institutional collaboration in doctoral education and research.
The initiative will promote interaction and collaboration between IIT KGP and the doctoral schools (or equivalent structures) of REseau DOCtoral en Sciences Pour l’Ingénieur (REDOC SPI) through visits and exchange programmes. It will also encourage joint academic and research doctoral programmes, and joint supervision of doctoral students.
Anandaroop Bhattacharya, associate dean, international relations, and coordinator of the collaborative initiative at IIT-KGP, said, "This is an exciting partnership enabling engagement of our institute with 27 doctoral schools throughout France. IIT-KGP and REDOC SPI may formulate joint academic and research activities such as short courses, seminars, workshops or conferences based on their mutual interests and available expertise. They may also share and carry out joint research in technology for distance and computer-based learning."
"The relationship also aims at enhancing the technological, social and cultural relations of both countries/states/regions," Bhattacharya added.
Hubert Romat, director for international relations, REDOC-SPI, stated, "We are looking forward to a long and productive partnership with the talented faculty members of this iconic institute."
