IRMA has entered into an agreement with ICAR-National Dairy Research Institute for promotion of research, academic, training and development, consulting, knowledge management and outreach activities in dairy sector. The agreement has been undertaken by IRMA’s Verghese Kurien Centre of Excellence (VKCoE).
Under the agreement, IRMA will design an integrated dairy management post graduate degree program for the undergraduate students of NDRI. Both the Institutes will also jointly conduct conferences, workshops and publish policy level reports to draw attention of policy makers in allied sectors.
They will also take up research and consulting and constitute a think tank by drawing professionals and experts from multi-disciplinary areas across sectors to periodically deliberate and chart pathways for both IRMA and NDRI to act upon.
Prof. Harekrishna Misra, Chair Professor, VKCoE and Prof CMA Paresh J Bhatt from IRMA as well as Dr. Bimlesh Mann, JD (Research) and Dr. Smita Sirohi, Head, DES&M, from NDRI will constitute a Steering Committee under the agreement that has been signed for a period of five years.
VKCoE aims to act as a catalyst in documenting the achievements in dairy sector in India, benchmark with national initiatives around the world and create the desired repository for the benefit of all the stakeholders.
While IRMA focuses on research, innovation, knowledge preservation and dissemination, outreach, extension and policy, VKCoE strives to emerge as an important platform for such interactions and exchanges and leapfrog the collective model to the next level.
