VISAKHAPATNAM: Experts from the industry and academia have proposed the establishment of incubation centres in joint collaborations, at the day-long UGC national seminar on ‘Sustainable Industry-Institute Interaction in the Changing Global Environment’ at Andhra University here Friday.

The need for effective and meaningful interaction between the university and the industry was stressed by the speakers at the seminar organised by the Department of Commerce and Management Studies to develop Research & Development initiatives for finding solutions to various pertinent problems in the country.

Andhra University vice-chancellor GSN Raju said that the university would set up an incubation centre jointly with industries to augment R&D and design innovative systems.

He said that interaction with industries would be strengthened at the college-level and urged industrialists to come forward for setting up their R & D laboratories jointly with universities.

Visakhapatnam Port Trust chairman MT Krishna Babu suggested that the academicians make a self-introspection on the standards of teaching and learning system in the country.

 He expressed his concern over the state of academic and research standards and emphasised upon more focus on problem-solving. “The students should be trained in a practical manner so that they can  contribute to the national development,” he said.

AU College of Arts and Commerce principal R Satya Raju, NTPC group general manager Asim Kumar Samantha and  Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) general manager V Narayanan were also present.
