Chitkara University receives “Going Global Partnership Grant 2021” with Glasgow Caledonian University from British Council, UK
Chitkara University has been awarded with the “Going Global Partnership Grant 2021” with Glasgow Caledonian University from British Council, United Kingdom. The grant is a part of the Going Global Partnerships Programme of the British Council which is aimed at India-UK partnerships for the co-creation of joint programmes of study. The partnerships will increase the exchange of ideas and knowledge and deepen understanding through the creation of teaching modules with shared objectives, delivery plans, assessment and quality assurance processes.
The key objective of the grant is to enhance opportunities for students in India and the UK to experience an international learning experience.
Chitkara University has received this grant in collaboration with Glasgow Caledonian University for project titled “Smart Grid for Sustainable Society”. The Collaboration Grants are awarded to pre-existing partners to expand the scope of work to include joint and collaborative teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Like the Exploratory grants, the key objective will be the development of a teaching and collaboration model and a course or module that contributes towards UK and India bachelor’s or master’s qualifications.
The partners will be able to secure consultancy services from the UK service providers such as ENIC, QAA and others. They will also be able to set aside a portion of the money to provide TNE bursaries or scholarships to students who wish to study in the United Kingdom. A plan for integrating learning into the state system through incentives, diffusion workshops, or other forms of systemic support will be welcome. They anticipate giving two to three grants ranging in value from £30,000 to £100,000 each in the financial year 2021-22.
The grant is disbursed in two tranches by December 2021 and March 2022. An Interim report is needed by 15th March 2022, for remaining tranche release by 31st March 2022. The proposed activities are to be completed by 31st December 2022 and final report is to be submitted by 31st January 2023. The grant is a result of the joint effort of team Chitkara University Research and Innovation Network (CURIN) and Office of International Affairs (OIA), Chitkara University led by Dr. Rajnish Sharma, Dean, Research, CURIN.
