Verghese Kurien Centre of Excellence (VKCoE)
The Verghese Kurien Centre for Excellence (VKCoE) has been set up at IRMA in 2015 with initial support from the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF). The Centre’s mandate is to work on emerging models of collectives and contemporary challenges of the dairy industry through research, consultancy, extension, outreach and policy analysis.
Every year VKCoE releases its information brochure on the birth anniversary of Dr. Verghese Kurien, the founder chairman of Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA). The information brochure provides details of various activities carried out by the VKCoE such as proposed and ongoing research projects, policy brief, working papers, journal publication, newspaper article, workshop details, and collaborations and MoU signed with various national and international organizations.
