“With the digitization program around the country along with JAM, the need of the hour is making learning - teaching easy for every youth. For almost more than 20 years we have been striving to bring the industry as well as the academia in to a symbiotic relationship.Though the task is difficult, our assessment is that we are almost at the goal post.”  

Dr. Gupta Sureshchandra J., Hon. Head at Computer Society of India, (Mumbai Chapter), told CXOToday. He further adds, the campus corporate relationship outside India is mainly based on projects which the industry gives to the research centers and uses the student power (research) to get them executed. In India we have only two such examples names viz. IISc Banglore and UICT Mumbai.

Speaking about the top three reasons to attend the conference, he said, TechNext provide the platform for the bouquet of contemporary ideas to be discussed threadbare, parallel workshops in the TechNext throws up innovative ideas and makes visible the latend talent in the academia and the discussions on the symbiotic relationship bridging the gap between the Industry & Academia also helps to discover new avenues for partnership and placements.
