Increased industry-academia linkages facilitate first-hand professional experience to the students, while for the practitioners, it brings greater opportunity to experiment, learn and refine. Recognising this need, INI and Institute of Architecture & Planning, Nirma University entered into a MoU for collaboration on research, practice and training. We look forward to developing a meaningful collaboration that shall bring value to both the organizations and also to the discipline at large.
