The conference is organized by BSAR University in collaboration with Deakin University, Australia and University Teknologi MARA, Malaysia.
“It would be very beneficial if institutions of national importance opened up and interrelated with other institutions of higher education for the benefit of future generations of Indian scientists and researchers, said J.A.K. Tareen, the vice-chancellor of B.S. Abdul Rahman University, at the inauguration of the conference.
While addressing the conference at the day of inauguration, the trade commissioner and consul commercial, Australian Consulate General, Chennai, Michael Carter said that recently there had been established more linkages between Australia and India in the education sector than in trade and commerce.
