EduLegaL, as part of its initiative to empower education sector, is organizing a webinar on “Collaboration between Indian and Foreign Universities: Legal and Regulatory Framework” on 18th June 2021 at 4 PM to discuss policy initiatives, legal, financial and taxation issues involved in such collaboration.

Discussion Topics:

1. Internationalisation of Education in India: A Policy Perspective
2. Types of Collaboration between Indian and Foreign Universities
3. Laws and Regulations regarding Collaborations and Agreements
4. Essentials in Agreement between Indian and Foreign Universities
5. Financial and Taxation Issues in Collaboration

Background:

The recent years have seen a significant rise in the internationalisation of higher education and research. Not only has it become one of the key priorities of Indian Universities but also a pathway to achieving international recognition and competitiveness.

The Government of India and key regulators such as UGC, AICTE and Medical Council among others are also proactively supporting initiatives that encourages international collaboration. The New Education Policy, 2020, also noticeably is taking step towards internationalisation of education by proposing a legislative framework that allows foreign universities to operate in India and similarly encourages high-performing Indian universities to set up campuses in other countries. Likewise, schemes such as Study India Program, Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) and Scheme for Promotion of Academic and Research Collaboration (SPARC) has also given a huge impetus towards enabling collaboration between Indian and Foreign Universities.

It therefore becomes essential to study factors that inform us about collaboration including academic co-operation, student exchange are necessarily of a contractual nature; it involves compliance with the contract laws and regulations / guidelines laid down by the education regulators. Other corresponding areas involving finance and taxation also become an essential aspect during the negotiations, more so, in collaboration involving technology transfer and Intellectual Property (IP) commercialisation.
