This Symposium will feature keynote addresses, student and faculty research presentations as well as discussions aiming at strengthening niche areas in promoting excellence.
Since its inception in 1968, the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute, with a consortium of 93 institutions of higher learning in Canada and India, has effectively supported excellence in academic partnership, collaborative research, youth engagement and cultural exchanges between the two countries.
As part of the Engaging India Series, the Institute is organizing its first 2013 regional Symposium at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC.
One of the event’s objectives is to gather experts and new cadre of researchers to discuss their contribution to higher learning while weaving academic and institutional collaborations between Canada and India. The growing challenges as well as the opportunities will be presented through a diversity of experiences.
It is expected that, by bringing together such richness of expertise, strategic recommendations are derived to contribute to a sustained academic and institutional partnerships in areas identified by Canada and India for Higher Education.
The Shastri Institute is pleased to showcase various achievements demonstrating the added value and importance of Canada-India relations. Emerging opportunities and strategies to address challenges will be at the core of this one and half day Symposium.
