Today, in conjunction with the White House’s launch of the United States-India Initiative on Critical and Emerging Technologies, AAU President Barbara R. Snyder issued the following statement noting that the organization will create a new task force consisting of university research and higher education leaders from the United States and India to make recommendations for expanding U.S.-India research and higher education partnerships:
Research partnerships between universities in the United States and international counterparts are crucial to global scientific, educational, and economic advancement; that is why these partnerships have always been a priority for the Association of American Universities. AAU is proud to work with our Indian counterparts to expand U.S.-Indian research and educational collaboration, and we look forward to working with India’s leading research universities to create a roadmap for a future of even more robust partnership.
