Headquartered in Bengaluru, the university will organise a gathering of leading academics, students, and high-performing industry experts that harbours the ambition to bridge the industry-academia schism, under the initiative of its dynamic School of Sciences (SoS).
The two-day event will revolve around creating a synergy between industry and academia so that the two sectors can seamlessly collaborate and feed into each other's expertise in order to tackle the emergent challenges, faced by society at large, that would merit a robust scientific innovation to tackle. Mirroring the ambition of JAIN (Deemed-to-be University), the event has a clear industry-oriented goal that attempts to bring about a nobility of purpose inherent in the pursuit of science.
