How will collaboration and regulated strategies help to enhance the scale and pace of academic......

Research is a long-drawn and a monotonous process that requires a regulated strategy, interest, focus, and most importantly funding that will support the activity marking its successful accomplishment, in the long run. Very recently both India and the US have planned towards establishing new dedicated joint research initiatives and institutions. It will scale up the pace of student-based collaboration and exchanges to enhance the scale and pace of academic and doctoral research. Leading Universities from the US and India have always recommended the need for having research exchange programs, which is indeed a future, that will also help in shifting the nature of research methodologies to be pursued.

This is as per the Association for American Universities Task Force’s yearly report stating to include suggestions for student-based research programs as a part of nine major recommendations that has been released in the report. According to the report of the Task Force, it was also founded that the leading research universities in both countries share a deep commitment to strengthening research partnerships. Thus, the support of bilateral academic cooperation becomes quite important for sharing information and methodologies for working on dynamic topics like security, geopolitics, and the economy.

Establishing the ‘Indo-U.S. Global Challenge Institutes’ for selecting a group of students from Indian and US Universities by which governments can expand opportunities for internships and apprenticeships for research scholars, has been an important initiative in the form of developing the diplomatic relationship between the two countries.
