The Centre on Law, Regulation and Technology (CLRT) at BML Munjal University (BMU) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition (MPI), Munich for a period of three years for joint research projects on data sharing in emerging economies.
The MoU also facilitates research visits of faculty members and doctoral students at both MPI and CLRT to fulfil the objectives of the project. Both the institutes can cooperatively organise workshops and conferences, engage in joint publications relating to the project and explore the possibilities of initiating other joint interdisciplinary research projects in areas of mutual interest.
Vikas Kathuria, executive director, Centre on Law, Regulation and Technology and associate professor, School of Law at BMU, who will coordinate this collaboration said, “The university is fast emerging as the hub for research projects, especially with Institute of Inclusive Innovation already established in collaboration with Imperial College London for facilitating cross-border innovation, research, and training. The partnership with MPI, Munich is clearly another milestone for BMU. This collaboration will offer an array of opportunities for knowledge creation and research facilities for both institutes equally and together will be stronger.”
The university aims to create a talented community of students and faculty to excel in teaching, learning and research, in a creative and stimulating environment. Through this collaboration, CLRT, an interdisciplinary academic research centre will be established at the School of Law, BML Munjal University.
