Joint vocational university under discussion

India and Germany are planning to set up a jointly funded vocational university, reports IANS. The university is likely to be based in one of the major cities of India and will provide technical education.

"We are looking at a couple of possibilities and one possibility is of setting up a central vocational university," said India’s Ambassador to Germany Sujatha Singh. "We hope that we can make some good progress on this over the next few months and bring it to fruition," Singh told IANS, whose correspondent in Berlin travelled with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh last week.

India and Germany last week signed two agreements to strengthen cooperation in education and research. Under one pact, the two countries agreed to launch a jointly funded initiative called “Indo-German strategic partnerships in higher education”.
