Role of Knowledge Sharing in the Globalisation of Indian Enterprises
COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH Since 1994, the centre has been conducting collaborative research with the following institutions: Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA. Institute of Developing Economies, Tokyo, Japan; Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands; United Nations University INTECH, Maastricht, The Netherlands; University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.
* Research Collaboration with Georgetown University, 1998- "Agreement for Academic Research and Co-operation" was signed by Professor Christopher Puto, Dean, School of Business, Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA and Professor Pravin Visaria, Director IEG, on September 4, 1998. Under this programme, Georgetown University "gift subscribed" two international journals to IEG library for a period of five years. They also funded IEG scholars' participation in several international conferences organised in the US. This joint research programme has resulted in the publication of several research papers.
Currently the Centre is jointly working with Georgetown University on the following themes:
Foreign Direct Investments
This programme is undertaken jointly with the Erasmus University Rotterdam. This programme has resulted in the publication of book on Globalisation and Indian Small Scale Industries. This study is based on the primary survey of about 200 small-scale industrial units in and around Delhi, Agra and Khurja. The study covers three urban industries - auto components, electronics and garments, as well as, three rural industries - leather, marble and pottery/ceramics. Under this programme research workshops were organised at the Erasmus University Rotterdam and at IEG. The study is complete and a seminar was organised at IEG on December 8, 2000 to discuss the findings. The findings of the study were also discussed at a seminar organised by TIFAC on December 7, 2000. Representatives from the Ministry of Science and Technology, Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, CSIR, Indian Institute of Technology, and small scale industrialists participated in the seminar.
* Research Collaboration with United Nations University INTECH, Maastricht, The Netherlands, 1995-
"General Agreement of Co-operation" between the United Nations University and IEG was signed on September 23, 1994 at IEG, by Professor Charles Cooper, Director, The United Nations University, Institute for New Technology (UNU-INTECH), Maastricht and Professor S. N. Mishra, Director, IEG in the presence of Professor A. M. Khusro, Chairman, IEG.
This programme has so far resulted in the organisation of two international conferences, a book, and exchange of Ph.D. scholars.
* Japan - India Institutional Linkage Programme on "International Economics and Development", 1994 - 1998
A Memorandum of Understanding was signed by IEG and IDE, Tokyo. Under this programme the Centre organised three international conferences, resulting in several publications. Furthermore, two international training programmes for young Asian Economists were also organised.
* Canada - India Institutions linkage programme on "Trade, Innovation and Industrial Performance", 1993-1995.
In 1993, four Canadian and Indian institutions were linked to conduct applied research under the Canada - India International Linkage Programme funded by the Canadian International Development Agency and managed by the Conference Board of Canada. The programme linked the following four institutions: Institute of Economic Growth, Delhi; Centre for International Studies, University of Toronto, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad; and Centre for Trade Policy and Law, Carleton University, Ottawa. The scholars from these four institutions were responsible for developing a joint project on Trade, Innovation, and Industrial Performance. The project succeeded in producing 11 research papers and a book published by the Carleton University Press, Ottawa.
Throughout the implementation of the project, the participating institutions worked closely together. They not only jointly developed the research proposal, but also conducted joint research and held two workshops, one on June 28, 1994 in Toronto, Canada, and the other on February 19-20, 1995, in Delhi, India.
