Diverse Ed Media > Events & Conferences > Industry-Academia Forum (IAF)

We are living in the era of Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Internet of Things, Robotic Process Automation and Big Data Analytics. We know that technology is changing at an incredibly fast pace. To sustain this changing trend and future skills, our normal education system has to be more dynamic. The industry will have to come forward and partner with academia to prepare our future generations ready for Industry 4.0

It has been 30 years when we started talking about Synergy between Industry-Academia, but now we will have to take a step forward and talk about some real partnerships & Industry intervention in our campuses. We need experts from the Industry to be in our campuses guiding us at every step, helping make our education more experimental & future skills focused. This partnership between Industry & Academia is pivotal in shaping future leaders.

We are committed to organizing more and more Industry-Academia Forum’s across the country for the stakeholders both from Academia & Industry to deliberate and move forward. For IAF, we invite Government officials, 100+ leading HR’s & industry professionals, 500+ leading educationists, 100+ education entrepreneurs & change evangelists, 50+ influencers and leaders of the HR & Education Industry.
