Agenda of the AIESC Meeting
The exciting part is that the chair will be visiting university campuses to see the scope of educational collaboration. Also, The second day of the meeting will be focussed on topics related to research.
The aim is to create a research-oriented ecosystem for the students to approach innovative opportunities. Nevertheless, this can only happen with the deepening of bilateral research collaborations between India and Australia. Such an ecosystem will be created with the help of industry partnerships, as well as sharing research workforce and strategies.
The ultimate agenda of this two-day council meeting is to make educational experiences better for students and incorporate skill development and research into their curriculum.
In 2011, AIESC was first founded under the name of the Australian India Education Council (AIEC). It is a bi-national organisation that involves discussions and deliberations on matters of education, training, and research partnerships between India and Australia.
The educational agenda of both countries has collided over time to keep the educational reforms running. The prioritisation of skill and the mobility of more and more Indian students for an Australian educational experience has fueled the agenda.
