IITGn, IIM-A to work with Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology on ICT
Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) and Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar (IIT-Gn) are all set to work with Japan which has long been synonymous with groundbreaking innovations and scientific breakthroughs. The institutes will help Indian industry absorb Japanese technology in the shortest time frame and look to create unique products for the Indian market in the areas of material science, energy and technology.
The idea is based on the Japanese government’s ‘Ubiquitous Network Society’ policy, which aims at integrating computers seamlessly into the society so that anybody can easily access a network, at anytime from anywhere and by any appliance. A team from Tokyo-headquartered Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) has made the proposal, and will visit IIM-A on February 7, 2013 to discuss the potential of working together with the institutes. Besides the three institutes, representatives from the Gujarat government and IIM-A alumni association will attend the first meeting to explore the proposal.
