AT A GLANCE

INDO-GLOBAL EDUCATION SUMMIT & EXPO 2017 on collaborations with foreign universities and student recruitment will be held at Mumbai (July 17), Hyderabad (July 19), Chennai (July 22), Bangalore (July 24), Kolkata (July 26), New Delhi (July 28).

Indo-Global Education Summit & Expo 2017 is a unique event which is being organized in India as a sequel to the highly successful Education Summits & Expos held since 2009. The Summit & Expo 2017 will have sessions on collaborative research programs, joint / dual degree programs, twinning & transfer programs, faculty & student exchange programs, study abroad in India programs, distance education programs, vocational education programs, and other academic partnerships. There will be separate sessions for student recruitment.

There will be one-on-one meetings between representatives of Indian institutions and those of foreign universities for forging academic collaborations.

The Summit & Expo 2017 is specifically designed for Vice-Chancellors, Directors, Principals, Provosts, Deans, Dept. Heads, Faculties, Scientists, Researchers, Trustees, Correspondents, Government Officials, Students and others connected with higher education.

Simultaneously, Indo-Global Skills Summit & Expo 2017 will be held at the same venues in the above cities. Both of the events are expected to have mutually supportive and synergistic effect, as they are both targeted at students and youth.


HIGHER EDUCATION
Indian educational system has been undergoing a paradigm shift in the recent past. India has the world’s second largest post-secondary student population of around 30 million. India has over 800 universities and university-level institutions and 48,000 colleges, and yet the gross enrollment ratio (GER) is low with only 20 per hundred accessing higher education. India is far behind the developed countries' average of 45 per hundred. The Government of India has set a GER target of 30 per cent by 2020 and for that to be achieved; the number of universities and colleges will have to be increased while enhancing the quality of existing institutions.

A major challenge is educational excellence. India has islands of excellence but the overall education standards are poor. The report that 60 to 70 percent of engineering graduates churned out are not employable, speaks about the quality of higher education in India. None of Indian universities are in the list of top ranked universities in the world. All this needs to change.

Faced with a growing demand for post secondary education and limited resources, India is looking towards private / public sectors and foreign universities to bridge the projected gap. The private sector has been given the opportunity to take initiative in developing infrastructure for higher education in the country. India is a member of the WTO and has now become a signatory to the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), thereby enabling high quality educational services to be offered in India from around the world. Further, the Indian economy is transforming into an international powerhouse requiring India to have the best possible educational opportunities for its citizens.

Indian students are interested in degrees and certificates offered by foreign universities and top Indian institutions at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels because of the excellent career prospects they offer. This demand is reflected by the tens of thousands of students going to the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, China, and other countries every year for higher education. Similarly, the demand is reflected by the tens of thousands of students seeking entry to top Indian institutions.
ACADEMIC COLLABORATIONS
Academic collaborations promote universal and equitable access to education, and develop in students the knowledge, confidence, and requisite skills to become lifelong learners and economic competitors in a dynamic global marketplace. Today, success is determined by access to knowledge. Education is no longer an option – it is a mandate for survival. An important mission of the Indus Foundation is to galvanize high-impact academic collaborations between educational entities in foreign countries on the one hand and those in India on the other. The Foundation acts as an internationally recognized support system for 21st Century education for bridging the education divide.

The Foundation recognizes that collaborative research programs, joint / dual degree programs, twinning and transfer programs, professional development programs, distance education programs, vocational education programs, faculty exchange programs, student exchange programs, partnership programs, study abroad in India programs, and other academic partnerships between foreign universities and Indian institutions are extremely useful in meeting the rapidly growing Indian educational needs. These programs contribute to the goal of preparing students to compete in the global economy. The staff of the Foundation have significant knowledge of the Indian and foreign educational systems. Over the years, the staff have developed extensive contacts with a wide array of accredited Indian institutions and foreign universities.
EDUCATION EXPO 2017
Indo-Global Education Expo 2017, running in parallel with the Summit, would provide a showcase of technology and training solutions, put the spotlight on educational institutions of excellence, and highlight best practices in teaching, learning and training. The Expo would also highlight progress in the development of Information and Communications technologies for education.

Indo-Global Education Expo 2017 is a professional event dedicated to the business of education, training and lifelong learning. The Expo would be a place where students aspiring for higher education, their parents, teachers, lecturers, educationists, and others, would throng. Indo-Global Education Expo 2017 will be promoted at national and international levels. Students will also be informed through their respective institutions.
SUMMIT & EXPO 2017
The Indus Foundation offers an efficient and cost-effective means of interaction between Indian institutions and foreign universities through the specially designed Indo-Global Education Summit & Expo 2017. Activities during the Summit & Expo include panel discussions by foreign participants and Sponsors, and interactions between Indian institutions and foreign universities for academic collaborations. The Summit & Expo 2017 is designed to be a fast-paced program, providing Indian institutions with valuable exposure to a large number of foreign universities from around the world. The Summit & Expo 2017 will help Indian institutions achieve excellent results in terms of academic collaborations and student recruitment.



SKILL DEVELOPMENT

The National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship 2015 has been formulated with the objective of skilling at scale with speed, standard and sustainability. India aims to skill 500 million people by 2022. It is therefore time to gear up for the futuristic jobs that would be carved out of Automation, Manufacturing and Migration which are some of the disruptive drivers that are transforming and changing the job market dramatically. It is imperative that youth are equipped with life skills that are adaptable to the rapidly evolving 21st century society.


Re-engineering Skills Ecosystem
Skill Ecosystem in India is divergent and vast covering 20 central ministry schemes with varying rate of success. With the introduction of the new Ministry for Skills and entrepreneurship two and half years ago, an attempt has been made to converge the skill development initiatives by various ministries and align it to the industry demand. The skill ecosystem is in evolving stage and continuously embracing the best practices from the various domestic successful schemes and international best practices. It is necessary to examine the domestic & international best practices and deliberate on challenges and find the way forward for strengthening the Skill Ecosystem in India.
Future Skills: Technology, Jobs and Talent
Industry is the next phase in the digitization of the manufacturing sector, driven by four disruptions: the astonishing rise in data volumes, computational power, and connectivity, especially new low-power wide-area networks; the emergence of analytics and business intelligence capabilities; new forms of human-machine interaction such as touch interfaces and augmented-reality systems; and improvements in transferring digital instructions to the physical world, such as advanced robotics and 3-D printing. An economically disruptive technology has the potential to create massive economic impact. Advanced robotics, for example, has the potential to affect US $6.3 trillion in labour costs globally. Cloud technology has the potential to improve productivity across US $3 trillion in global enterprise IT spending, as well as enabling the creation of new online products and services for billions of consumers and millions of businesses alike. It is necessary to deliberate on the technological advancements in near future and its impact on labour market and skill set required.
Skills for Migration: Mobility
Indo-Global Education Expo 2017, running in parallel with the Summit, would provide a showcase of technology and training solutions, put the spotlight on educational institutions of excellence, and highlight best practices in teaching, learning and training. The Expo would also highlight progress in the development of Information and Communications technologies for education.

Indo-Global Education Expo 2017 is a professional event dedicated to the business of education, training and lifelong learning. The Expo would be a place where students aspiring for higher education, their parents, teachers, lecturers, educationists, and others, would throng. Indo-Global Education Expo 2017 will be promoted at national and international levels. Students will also be informed through their respective institutions.
Academe and Industry Collaboration
India's education system has had a distinct bias against skills and government is now making efforts to integrate education with skill development. The current Indian education system does not lead to trained young people in employable skills who are open to immediate e employment opportunities. With current and expected economic growth, this problem is expected to aggravate as more than 75% of the new job opportunities are expected to be skill-based. It is necessary to discuss the successful models of skills integration with education in the country and find possible way forward for large scale integration.

Collaboration between universities and industries is critical for skills development (education and training), the generation, acquisition, and adoption of knowledge (innovation and technology transfer), and the promotion of entrepreneurship (start-ups and spin-offs). The benefits of university-industry linkages are wide-reaching: they can help coordinate R&D agendas and avoid duplications, stimulate additional private R&D investment, and exploit synergies and complementarities of scientific and technological capabilities. University-industry collaboration can also expand the relevance of research carried out in public institutions, foster the commercialization of public R&D outcomes, and increase the mobility of labour between public and private sectors. The benefits of university-industry collaboration are evident in developing countries. For example, it is acknowledged that collaboration with universities substantially increases the propensity of firms to introduce new products and to patent.
Startups and Entrepreneurship
A startup is an entrepreneurial venture which is typically a newly emerged, fast-growing business that aims to meet a marketplace need by developing or offering an innovative product, process or service. A startup is usually a company such as a small business, a partnership or an organization designed to rapidly develop scalable business model. Often, startup companies deploy technologies, such as Internet, e-commerce, computers, telecommunications, or robotics. These companies are generally involved in the design and implementation of the innovative processes of the development, validation and research for target markets.

Traditionally, an entrepreneur has been defined as "a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk". Rather than working as an employee, an entrepreneur runs a small business and assumes all the risk and reward of a given business venture, idea, or good or service offered for sale. The entrepreneur is commonly seen as a business leader and innovator of new ideas and business processes. Entrepreneurs tend to be good at perceiving new business opportunities and they often exhibit positive biases in their perception (i.e., a bias towards finding new possibilities and seeing unmet market needs) and a pro-risk-taking attitude that makes them more likely to exploit the opportunity.

Startups and Entrepreneurship are the two buzz words in India today. They are very important for students and educational institutions. India is now number 3 in terms of startups across the world. These have become a clear focus not only from the Government "StartUp India" but with every major university now building an innovation lab and a startup cell including courses on Startups and entrepreneurship. These have become important and interesting career options for students with a focus on "Job Creators vs Job Seekers". Frugal innovation is also in this mix for building the Startups and Entrepreneurship in India.

While the exhibitors get the opportunity to showcase the courses and facilities they offer, the student community will have a chance to check for themselves what is on offer, weigh their options and then make an informed choice.
