The program will consist of a number of plenary sessions and talks by members from the RMIT’s research community and 12 highly regarded scientists and joint supervisors of RMIT PhD students from IICT, Hyderabad.
During the workshop, RMIT researchers will have an opportunity to interact with members of the Indian delegation to share research ideas and foster collaborations.
In February 2011 RMIT made its first official footprint in India through the establishment of the CSIR-IICT-RMIT Joint Research Centre in Hyderabad and since its establishment a total of 21 PhD students have enrolled in the PhD program of the Centre under the joint supervision of RMIT and IICT.
The major theme of this workshop is focused on providing networking and collaboration opportunities between Indian and Australian researchers, particularly RMIT and IICT in the field of applied and basic sciences.
