The event brainstormed over issues of relevance from the standpoint of improving quality in higher education. The summit witnessed the launch of CII’s biggest initiative yet in higher education—the institution of University-Industry Congress which was slated to be a mega, open-ended project.

Scholars, decision makers and patrons of knowledge amongst the Industry, Government bodies and Academia debated on subjects like Examination Reforms, Intellectual Property Issues, Teaching Aids and so forth. Staged at the realm of a national platform, this event was graced by representatives from institutions of repute viz., MHRD, USPTO and other distinguished guests.

This conclave showed the gateway for the academicians and Industry Representatives to be an audience of the Knowledge Industry and learn about various opportunities that would facilitate in making the University processes robust, efficient and transparent.
