Abstract

The development of research infrastructure plays a vital role in the advancement of knowledge and technology. They are significant in addressing grand challenges on all scales, i.e., national, regional, continental and global. The sharing of research infrastructure facilities at national or international level is desirable for international research co-operation for education, innovation and technology development on one hand and generation of goodwill and peace on the other. The details of research cooperation of Universitat Politècnica València (UPV) with M. D. University (MDU), Rohtak and Gurukul Kangri University (GKU), Haridwar, India, are presented in this article. The cooperation was initiated nearly five years back with a simple e-mail asking for characterization of a crystalline material for which, the facility was available at UPV. There are joint research projects, joint research publications and inter university visits of faculty members during this period. This type of collaboration is not only dependent on the willingness of partners but also on the various international programmes operating in UPV, Spain, Europe Union and India. We expect the cooperation will not stop here but it will grow further in near future
