Chennai, The Knowledge Summit, 10 March 2018: Thales and the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to create a jointly supervised PhD fellowship programme in coordination with CNRS. Thales and IIT Madras look forward to strengthening Indo-French scientific collaboration while contributing towards the development of highly specialised technical skills in India. The MoU exchange ceremony took place in the presence of Mr Prakash Javadekar, honourable Minister of Human Resource Development, Government of India, and H.E. Frederique Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Government of France, at The Knowledge Summit. Thales already has similar agreements for jointly supervised PhDs with prestigious institutions like Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore, IIT Bombay and IIT Delhi. These agreements underline Thales' research focus and collaborations with academia to create technologies for smarter and faster decision making for problem solving in complex situations. Speaking at the ceremony, Emmanuel de Roquefeuil, Vice President & Country Director, Thales in India said, "As a global technology leader, we are always excited about investing in the future through varied initiatives focused on research and engineering. Given this focus, IIT Madras is a natural partner and we are very proud of this association. We believe it will serve our common objective of fostering a strong Indo-French research ecosystem and also support the Skill India initiative of the Indian government."
