India’s higher education system is one of the largest in the world and offers many co-operation opportunities for Nordic universities. The sheer breadth of human capital being trained in India for the domestic and international market along with the increasing focus on technology and innovation, make the Indian higher education and research landscape a promising and exciting proposition for international collaboration and cooperation.
This is especially relevant in the context of the initiatives taken up by the Government of India to encourage internationalisation for the purpose of improving the quality of research and training at Indian HEIs. The major initiatives in this direction include the Global Initiative of Academic Networks and Scheme for Promotion of Academic and Research Collaboration along with programs such as Institutions of Eminence that are focussing on creating world-class teaching and research institutions. These initiatives will also be significantly bolstered by the New Education Policy that aims to make Indian HE more competitive while focussing on "sustainably making India into an equitable and vibrant knowledge society, by providing high-quality education to all, and thereby making India a global knowledge superpower."
In light of the Covid 19 pandemic, NCI has had to suspend most of its normal activities and programmes as described in this information package.

We continue to follow the situation in India and are hopeful that we can resume normal activities soon based on governmental and institutional advice. NCI continues to be digitally connected with all relevant stakeholders. We encourage you to contact us with your queries.Know More
