The year 2015 was eventful for BMSCE, as the Annual Stakeholders Meeting (India) was held at the BMSCE board room in July. The meeting was attended by the heads of the stakeholder institutions: Prof. Balagangadhara and his research team, Prof. Mallikharjuna Babu, Prof. Martin Jebraj, and Prof. Ravishankar Deekshit. Mrs. Archana Bhat Kallahalla has been appointed as the BMSCE coordinator for the India Platform from the month of April onwards. The Annual Meeting was presided by Prof. Balagangadhara. The new members of the IP team were introduced to the stakeholders.
The Stakeholders Meeting was followed by the inauguration of the BMSCE-IP office at the college campus. The office was jointly inaugurated by Prof. Balagangadhara and the BMSCE Principal, Prof. Mallikharjuna Babu.
From the BMSCE report:
“India Platform helped us to bring several foreign researchers to the BMSCE campus and created a platform
for all of us to discuss with them. The visit of the European researchers and entrepreneurs resulted
in fruitful collaboration between BMSCE and Europe. Now we are planning to use this link to connect
together with various funds. It is really helpful for Europeans as well as Indians to connect through India
Platform so that we can utilize our mutual strength and understand our mutual weakness.”
