The Higher School of Economics (HSE), situated in Russia, and the University of Delhi have forged an agreement for strategic collaboration and joint initiatives, marking the commencement of a significant research hub at the partner institution.
The Indo-Russian Education Summit held in New Delhi recently marked a milestone in the bilateral relations between India and Russia, as stated by the Russian embassy in India on Thursday.
Over 60 Russian universities, representing various regions such as Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Siberia, Crimea, and the Urals, congregated in the national capital for this event.
“During the three-day educational forum, the Higher School of Economics (HSE) and the University of Delhi entered into an agreement on strategic cooperation and joint actions. As part of it, a large research hub will start operating at the partner university from India,” the embassy statement mentioned.
HSE University, based in Moscow, Russia, stands as a prominent national research institution.
From April 11 to 13, the summit, organized by the Russian State Agency 'Rossotrudnichestvo,' the Russian House in New Delhi, and the Russian Embassy in India, brought together university rectors, diplomats, politicians, scientists, and business leaders from India and Russia.
The aim was to explore fresh avenues for collaboration in education, science, innovative technologies, and professional training.

“At the plenary session on April 11, Deputy Head of Rossotrudnichestvo Pavel Shevtsov noted that the Summit provides leading Indian and Russian universities with an unprecedented platform to engage in transformative dialogue and exchange,” the statement added.

On the second day, a fair showcasing Russian universities opened at the Le Meridien Hotel. The exhibition area, which filled the hotel's vast assembly hall, attracted a diverse crowd, including schoolchildren, students, journalists, and representatives from educational institutions.
“On the sidelines of the event, official and informal meetings of representatives of the Russian and Indian educational communities took place,” according to the statement.
Moreover, Pavel Shevtsov and Russian Deputy Education Minister Denis Gribov visited Sancta Maria International School in Faridabad. In New Delhi, they held discussions with Sanjay Kumar, Secretary of the Education Minister.
Furthermore, in addition to the aforementioned agreement, approximately a dozen similar agreements were also signed.
