The University has collaborations with several universities from abroad and research institutes in India thus creating positive impact on research activities.
Established collaborations with international universities :
Research organizations at national level :
Renowned industries :
The collaboration with North Carolina University has helped the College of Engineering, Pune in creating an identity in the area of Composite materials and Nanotechnology. This collaboration has helped in organizing international conferences on nanotechnology in association with international universities and in creating a brand image of the University at international level.
The collaboration between Medical College, Pune and the state government resulted in getting a large number of clinical trials due to which faculty got an opportunity to work as experts on the project ‘Standard Treatment Protocols’ of Government of Maharashtra. This has positively impacted on the identity of the University.
The Institute of Environment Education and Research, Pune has undertaken interdisciplinary research projects in collaboration with University of Cologne, and University of Augsburg, Germany. The collaborative research includes ‘impact of climate change and land use change on the water resources of the Mula and Mutha rivers catchment upstream of Pune’, ‘designing a health monitoring system – the example of the Indian megacity of Pune’, and ‘Modeling the effects of land use and climate change upon in-stream hydraulics in mountainous streams in rapidly urbanizing regions of the Western Ghats’. The institute is also involved with a four nation study on “Education for Sustainable Development” (ESD) through its collaboration with Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Germany along with experts from Universities and the Governments from Germany, South Africa, Mexico and India wherein policies for mainstreaming ESD in each country are being developed.
Outstanding collaborative research activities have increased the visibility of research potential of faculty and created an identity of the University at national and international level. Few of the significant activities includes the development of immune-modulator drugs, isolation of pathogens from subway foods, community water and contraceptives, probiotics research, mushroom cultivation, biomedical waste management, gardening and landscape design etc.
As a result, the University features at NCBI Database, Bethesda, European Molecular Biology laboratory (EMBL) and DNA Database of Japan (DDBS).
