It is evident from global experiences that flexibility has a critical role in the internationalisation process of higher education institutions. Although the idea of creating world-class institutions has always been at the top of the agenda of the Indian Government, recent initiatives have largely been constrained by various domestic factors.
However, the Government has realised that addressing the key issue of institutional flexibility is important to shape India’s future role in the global knowledge economy. Recently announced national-level policy changes in higher education, such as Institutions of Eminence and Graded Autonomy, are encouraging signs.
This e-poster will examine the greater institutional flexibility promised by the new regulations. It will also provide information on partnership opportunities likely to enhance the innovative capacities of institutions, students and educators.
Delegates attending this e-poster session will gain an understanding of:
* institutions that are covered under the new regulations for international partnerships
* the importance of understanding the new regulatory framework to enter into teaching, research and mobility partnerships with Indian institutions.
