IIT Bombay and The Ohio State University, USA, have come together to jointly organize an annual symposium on the science and engineering for sustainable and resilient model of development in collaboration with Techstain Technologies as organizing partner. In this inaugural year the Symposium will focus on ‘Sustainability of Earth and Water Resources from Ecological Perspective’. The event is to be held on 26th July, 2017 at the Victor Menezes Convention Center (VMCC), IIT Bombay.

The day-long symposium will focus on identifying the cross-linkages between the concepts and practice of sustainable engineering. It will bring together thought leaders and practitioners across multiple sectors to deliberate upon the critical challenges facing India’s sustainable development and brainstorm about the direction needed for exploring potential solution. 

Broad Objectives of Symposium are:

1. To create awareness and necessary linkages for bringing Sustainability and Resilience studies from periphery to center of all engineering R&D initiatives.

2. To provide a platform for sustainability thinkers from corporate, academia, Government and NGOs for framing relevant and implementable policies for a clean environment.

3. To evolve sustainability governance framework at the global level with special attention to the emerging economies like India.

4. To identify key research projects those need to be incubated.

5. To build and maintain linkages between laboratory researches, immediate industry need, corporate governance tools and Governmental planning to support such initiatives.
