India, Scotland sign four educational agreements

New Delhi: India and Scotland Tuesday signed four educational agreements to promote joint research in the fields like biotechnology and bio-informatics, diabetes and foot care training, IT and video games.

Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal and Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond materialized the agreements in the presence of universities from both the sides. From Indian side, Delhi University, Indian Institute of Information Technology at Allahabad and Sitaram Bhartia Institute of Science and Research will be part of the collaboration.

Sibal said that these agreements will lead to providing tangible solution in their respective field. However, it was made clear that these agreements will not lead to Scottish institutes like Edinburgh and University opening campus in India once the foreign university bill becomes a law.
