About the Industry-Academia Conclave

The Industry-Academia collaboration is beneficial for an Industry as well as an Institute with the shared human resource, Infrastructure, lab setup, equipment & facilities. The Industry can take help from an Institute for carrying out R&D and to solve any technical hurdles, and on the other hand the students & faculties get a chance to further hone their skills & knowledge in the Industry environment by taking up internship opportunities & related projects. It is a win-win situation for both parties - the companies offer business insights and the students contribute proven methodology and expertise. While working on Industry-sponsored projects at an academic Institute, students learn how to make their methodologies tangible in real life situations. It helps to create employable students “Industry-ready students”. The main benefit for companies from this cooperation is the access to the latest research results and innovative new methodologies. Companies which do not have a close relationship to the academic community are expected to advance slower. They miss out on early access to the latest research results and methodologies and then need more time to put these methods into practice. Being one of the leading Teaching and Research Institutions of India, during this Interactive Industry-Academia Conclave, the IIITA would like to explore possible collaboration with the participating companies for augmenting its academics, research, innovation, employability and greater productivity, through various measures.
