Featured facility: IIT Kanpur has developed an autonomous, unmanned, mini helicopter with support from the Department of Science and Technology (DST). The indigenously developed unmanned aerial vehicle has huge potential for use in agricultural spraying, surveillance, monitoring and aerial survey as well as for medical supplies and various defense applications.
India’s collaborations with different countries is putting together expertise and boosting scientific excellence beyond borders. Bilateral cooperation helps find solutions to global issues. Cooperative actions by states promote good will, strengthen political relationships, help foster democracy and civil society, and advance the frontiers of knowledge for the benefit of common mankind. Collaborative agreements have significant indirect benefits like encouraging sustainable developmental goals and promoting science education for youth.
In order to leverage the collective cooperative action by states to address common challenges collaboratively, India fosters numerous regional and multilateral engagements and partnerships in the fields of Science and Technology. These engagements are done through cooperation frameworks at inter-governmental level with a view to make positive contributions for gainful consequences and spin offs. Multilateral cooperation boosts India's image abroad and creates favourable conditions for strengthening cooperation with other countries and international networks.
