106 MOUs Initiated by Education Ministry to Promote Research and Innovation


A new era of educational collaboration and industry-academia partnerships has begun thanks to the 106 Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) that the Ministry of Education has signed with esteemed companies and institutions. These agreements promise to lead to substantial future advancements by fostering innovation, advancing ground-breaking research, and facilitating the flow of knowledge across numerous fields.

A historic day was observed with the signing of many MoUs during the Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam to honour the third anniversary of the introduction of the new National Education Policy (NEP).

Additionally, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) inked 15 MoU with various institutions and sector-skill providers. These strategic alliances seek to give students’ acquisition of critical abilities and knowledge specific focus.

According to a senior MoE official reported by sources, “These partnerships will also promote skill assessment and capacity building.”

The Atal Innovation Mission, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Sports, Physical Education, Fitness and Leisure Skills Council, Central Square Foundation (CSC), Educational Initiatives Private Limited, Oxford University Press India, Logistics Sector Skill Council, Furniture and Fittings Sector Skill Council, Life Sciences Sector Skill Council, Textiles Sector Skill Council, and Automotive Sector Skill Council all participated in the signing of the Memoranda of Understanding.

By signing three important MoUs, the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) made tremendous progress. The first MoU was with the Indian Sign Language Research and Training Centre (ISLRTC), with the intention of promoting Indian sign language and encouraging collaboration for standardising and creating first-rate educational materials in this language.

The main objective of the second MoU with the Common Service Centres, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, was to use CSC e-governance services to expedite admissions of Out of School Children (OoSC) into NIOS, increase enrolment, and improve e-services.
