Gujarat: First Australia India Education and Skill Council meeting to be held at IIT Gandhinagar
The First Australia India Education and Skill Council (AIESC) meeting will be held at IIT Gandhinagar in Gujarat today. The Ministry of Education said that the AIESC, earlier the Australian India Education Council (AIEC), is a bi-national body established in 2011 to guide the strategic direction of the education, training, and research partnerships between the two countries.
The scope of this forum was enhanced in alignment with the national priorities of both countries to bring focus on promoting internationalisation, two-way mobility, and collaboration in the domains of education as well as the skill ecosystem.
This is the first time that education and skilling are being brought under the same institutional forum. The meeting will be jointly chaired by Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, Australian Education Miniaster Jason Clare and Brendan O’Connor, Minister for Skills and Training, Government of Australia.
This meeting will provide a platform for academic and skill experts to discuss a wide range of mutually agreed priorities, with the ultimate aim of shaping the future of education and skilling in both our nations.
