CS3's Interaction with Foreign & Indian Institutions

In order to remain abreast of current international developments and also to enable research faculties to widen their horizons, it is important to have regular interactions with other think tanks both nationally as well as internationally. USI-CS3 therefore works in close cooperation with national level think tanks in India. Similarly it endeavors to establish bilateral relationships with international think tanks, especially those located in our regions of interest.

Bilateral interactions with foreign think tanks are envisaged to include the following :-

  1. Regular (annual) dialogue on subjects of mutual interest.
  2. Conduct joint studies/projects.
  3. Exchange of research scholars.
  4. Invitations to participate in each others' events such as important sessions, seminars, conferences etc.

The USI-CS3 has established bilateral arrangements with institutions in many countries.
