From times immemorial, teaching and research have been an indispensable activity and, today, is becoming increasingly multidisciplinary in nature. As technology advances in every stream the world over, cultures are increasingly starting to interact with one another. Also, significant social and political changes are currently under way and there is tremendous potential for global teaching and research, free of ideologies, to engage in peaceful activities for the benefit of mankind. Globalization of media has shown mankind the potential possibilities available with modern society and has made them desire improvements in their quality of life. Such desires and needs can only be met on a global scale when a new class of academicians and professionals come together, prepared with multitude of skills, insights, perspectives, and better analytical, creative skills and willingness to adapt to new and changing conditions. Such competencies are critical as we have transcended into the new millennium.
Academicians, students and professionals with cross-cultural sensitivity, skills and a broad base of knowledge would be in significant demand in the coming decade. The need would be to empower them with such skills (required for teaching and active research) so that they effectively contribute to the growth of new economies. The Centre for Incubation, Innovation, Research & Consultancy addresses the same by promoting new and advanced technologies by establishing centres of excellence jointly with support from various agencies in diverse domains of science and technology.
