Annual Report of Alliances & Collaborations (20-21)

Annual Report of Alliances & Collaborations (20-21)

Working with other institutions through formal or informal alliances and collaborations is a key aspect of Indic Academy’s strategy for two primary reasons

  1. IA seeks to act as a hub and be a Inter Gurukula – University Center, focusing on research , design and development of curriculum . Delivery of the courses so developed  is sought to be done through IA campus centers proposed at various universities as well as through its online platform. Teacher training workshops will also be carried on by IA by inviting scholars from various Universities.
  2. Apart from being a hub to Universities, IA also seeks to build an ecosystem of all the players in the ecosystem through a conscious strategy of ‘connect, contribute and collaborate’ strategy. As a part of this strategy IA not only facilitates connections by nurturing domain specific networks, contribute to the efforts of individuals and institutions by providing grants but also actively collaborates with other institutions by offering or receiving expertise, infrastructure, access to customers and financial support.

Over the years IA has developed alliances with some of the premier institutions and bodies and during the year under review continued its active engagement with most of them.  An institution wise summary of the activities for the year 20-21 is given below :
