                                          BRICS Network University: Background

BRICS Network University is a union of higher education institutions of the five BRICS member countries, formed with the objective of enhancing educational collaboration in research, innovation and other educational activities. It was established in November 2015 via a MoU signed during the third meeting of BRICS Education Ministers

It is a platform for development and implementation of joint (bilateral or multilateral) educational projects in various knowledge fields by BRICS NU participants. The six thematic fields covered under BRICS NU include the following: Energy; Computer Science and Information Security; BRICS Studies; Ecology and Climate Change; Water Resources and Pollution Treatment; and Economics.

In India, the BRICS NU activities are under the aegis of the National Coordination Committee with Secretary, Ministry of Education as Chair. Vice Chancellors/Directors of each of the participating institutions also serve on the Coordination Committee. A particular thematic area is specified for each participating institution. Activities in the assigned thematic area are coordinated by a faculty member from that domain.

In the domain of Economics, the Delhi School of Economics, University of Delhi is the Lead Institution and the Indian Statistical Institute – Delhi Centre is the Partner Institution. Prof Pami Dua (DSE) and Prof Chetan Ghate (ISI) are the Coordinators of the respective institutions.

Under the aegis of India’s Chairship of BRICS in 2021 and as part of engagements that India is hosting under the education stream this year, the Delhi School of Economics, University of Delhi and the Indian Statistical Institute – Delhi Centre are organizing a webinar and discussion session on August 10 at 6 PM (Indian Standard Time) with the theme: COVID-19 Pandemic and Revival Strategies of Global and BRICS Economies.
