In Partnership with Delhi, NYAS Will Help Build Knowledge City

India's capital city looks to NYAS for guidance facilitating scientific exchange.

Published January 15, 2010

As part of its initiative to promote the development of global knowledge capitals, the Academy has established a partnership with the government of Delhi, the capital city of India. The Academy will collaborate with the Delhi Knowledge Development Foundation to promote science and technology education and research in that city. Delhi’s Chief Minister, Sheila Dikshit, said that the partnership “is likely to go a long way in helping and defining the vision of Delhi as a knowledge city.” She added that the areas in which Delhi would seek assistance from the Academy would include conceptualizing a science and technology university and a pharmaceutical university, promoting science and technology park, holding scientific seminars, and facilitating the exchange of ideas among science and technology professionals. At press time, a Memorandum of Understanding had been drafted and approved by the Delhi state cabinet.
