University Level Research Collaboration & Exchange of Knowledge

In Enterprise Collboration in Academia and Research on January 26, 2012 at 12:55 AM

It is interesting to see how large universities try to promote research collaboration and exchange of knowledge among their departments and schools. Very often a new interdisciplinary research center is set up to promote these. However, there is more that can be done to bring down barriers between the departments and encourage greater interaction between them. As part of my duties as the President of NTU Graduate Students’ Club (, I initiated a project in this regard with the very kind and passionate support of various offices in NTU. We are working on establishing an online platform using Cisco’s Quad Enterprise Collaboration Platform ( to promote greater interaction between research students and faculty members from different schools. We expect to do a pilot launch in the 1st quarter of 2012. I will make more details soon available.
