NEW DELHI, Nov. 28, 2022 — The University of Birmingham Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adam Tickell, signed a range of Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with the University’s partners at special signing ceremonies in Bengaluru and Delhi.

The agreements are vital to the University’s ongoing strategic vision to build meaningful education and research partnerships in India.

Professor Adam Tickell signed MoUs with the following:

“The University of Birmingham’s collaborative research output with India partners has almost doubled over the last five years. We currently have over 40 joint research projects of outstanding quality,” commented Professor Adam Tickell.

“We are a global civic university with a long, illustrious relationship with India. Signing these agreements with partners in areas such as railways, sports science, education, and community business gives us a great opportunity to further contribute to Indian society,” he added.

The University and TESCO Business Services are joining forces to create postgraduate study programs in data science and artificial intelligence. The partnership will see University experts designing and delivering educational programs for TESCO’s staff - from training in specific professional areas to formal postgraduate qualifications.

TESCO will also explore opportunities for suitably qualified Birmingham students to join placements at the company’s data-science laboratories in India and offer guest lectures to Birmingham staff and students.

University experts from the Birmingham Centre for Railways Research and Excellence (BCRRE) will work with K-RIDE - an urban rail transport joint venture of Govt. of Karnataka and the Ministry of Railways - to launch studies into two major areas: Power consumption and energy analysis and railway network operational simulation, resilience testing and optimization.

Working with Aarvee Associates, University experts will help develop railway condition monitoring and sensing equipment within tunnels and bridges. Partnering with Efftronics will see research and knowledge exchange projects developed in signaling schemes, training programs, and CPD courses.

Academics from Birmingham will work with experts at Hindustan Petroleum Company Ltd. - supporting the creation of a research Centre of Excellence and helping to develop innovative solutions to hydrogen production and storage, fuel cells, domestic hydrogen transportation, and re-fuelling systems.

Professor Tickell signed agreements with Manipal University to create a dual Master’s Programme in Artificial Intelligence & Data Science and explore new opportunities for student exchange between the two universities.

Birmingham academics will also work with partners at Vellore Institute of Technology and Bennett University to develop new opportunities in law. They will also partner with the Indo-British Scholars’ Association to develop unique education opportunities that benefit both Indian and British students.

Alex Ellis, British High Commissioner to India, said: “I am delighted that the University of Birmingham is strengthening its presence in India across railways, sports science, education, and community business. British and Indian institutions can address shared global challenges through research, innovation, and knowledge. The University has strong India partnerships. These new agreements will further benefit both our countries.”

The University of Birmingham has several significant partnerships in India, underpinned by its India Institute, which aims to increase the visibility, impact, and coherence of Birmingham’s engagement in the country.

The University of Birmingham ranks amongst the world’s top 100 institutions. Its work brings people from across the globe to Birmingham, including researchers, teachers, and more than 6,500 international students from over 150 countries.
