The objective of “Universities of India” is to show-case the knowledge base of Indian universities to the world and more specifically to the corporate and industry partners. This will enable Indian universities to reach out to the global market in order to create employment opportunity for their students in the global market place.    

Each year the event “Universities of India” (UoI) is the culmination of dedicated effort of the event partners by compiling and profiling the knowledge resource of the academia and trying to connect them to the industry for meaningful partnerships.     

In 2007 CII formed the University-Industry Council taking the initiative to provide a platform for Indian Industry and Universities to interact, share knowledge and catalyze several joint activities either collectively or bilaterally. The University - Industry Council has representation from CII, the heads of all Universities- Central, State, Regular and Open; senior members from Industry; eminent educationists; education bodies like UGC, AICTE etc. In 2009 Mindlogicx Infratec Ltd. started the initiative of conducting Universities of India – A knowledge Conclave with much the same aim.  

Universities of India 2009 was the first initiative of its kind that provided information and insight to all segments and stakeholders interested in nurturing the growth of higher education in India, while also providing them access to suitable technology to enable sustained growth among academia. The Universities of India knowledge resource is an expression of commitment to quality assurance and excellence in the academic portfolio management. The conclave has been designed to be an accessible forum for the corporate and various industry segments in understanding the strengths of the participating universities and further act as a resource material to the industry partners.    

UOI endeavours to connect the industry and academia and bring them together under one roof. At this landmark event, we are creating the opportunity for the academia to network with the CEOs, thought leaders, entrepreneurs and corporate decision makers from around the world.

About Mahabalipuram
Mahabalipuram, derived from 'Mamallapuram' is a town in Kancheepuram district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It has an average elevation of 12 metres (39 feet).

Mahabalipuram was a 7th century port city of the South Indian dynasty of the Pallavas around 60 km south from the city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu. The name Mamallapuram is believed to have been given after the Pallava king Narasimhavarman I, who took on the epithet Maha-malla (great wrestler), as the favourite sport of the Pallavas was wrestling. It has various historic monuments built largely between the 7th and the 9th centuries, and has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
