O.P. Jindal University signs MoU with London university

New Delhi, Dec 11 (IANS) Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to facilitate collaboration between emerging research universities in South Asia for teaching, academic and research activities.

The MoU was signed here on Decemebnr 9 at the start of a three-day British ministerial visit led by Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills Sajid Javid and Minister for Universities and Science Jo Johnson, to promote cooperation in education, skills and research.

QMUL’s Vice Principal David Sadler and O.P. Jindal University’s Vice Chancellor C. Raj Kumar signed the MoU, under which QMUL expresses support for the International Institute for Higher Education Research and Capacity Building (IIHEd), O.P. Jindal Global University, in its endeavour to create the Association of Emergent South Asian Research Universities (AESARU).

The AESARU is perceived as a network of universities that are relatively newly-established, aspire to a significant research ambition in their institutional mission, aim to contribute to economic and social progress and are genuinely not-for-profit in their operating model.

Under the MoU, QMUL will facilitate the building of a network for the AESARU and will cultivate members not only from its own extensive network in the region, but also from outside.

The two institutions will jointly organise meetings and conferences for the network activities. Other AESARU activities will include, among other things, student and faculty exchanges, research and teaching collaborations and summer programmes.
