According to the information furnished by the University of Delhi, the University has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO).
One of the objectives of the MoU is to initiate the process to identify core technology research areas of mutual interest and to establish a centre of excellence at the University, preferably within a period of three years, through appropriate funding from the DRDO. Though inviting proposals from the colleges for funding of innovative projects is not a part of the MoU, the University has invited proposals from its colleges in this regard through its newly initiated Cluster Innovation Centre. A Monitoring and Assessment Committee has also been constituted to work on the objectives defined in the MoU.
This information was given by Dr. D. Purandeswari, Minister of State for Human Resource in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
