This book is a winning recipe for how to create a globally respected research institution in any country. A must-read for everyone interested in higher education and research.
This book describes in depth the fundamental issues in Indian universities and the need to improve the research ecosystem to enable the potential of faculty and students to be fully realized. This insightful and well-written volume will benefit all those involved with the governance of higher education, especially the administrators and policymakers.
Higher education in India has grown tremendously. However, much remains to be done on the quality of research and its application for practical problems. The author has gone into the fact sheet and challenges that lie ahead for building world-class research universities. This book comes at an appropriate time when the new National Education Policy is on the anvil, and will open new vistas for policymakers, educationists, administrators and students of higher education.
The book presents a very comprehensive view of the current standing of research ambience in the university system in India, and the way forward to building world-class universities through a conscious promotion of the research culture in universities. This is a must-read for all academics and leaders of higher education who are seriously interested in promoting high-end academic research in universities, especially in India.
India urgently needs world-class research universities. This book by Pankaj Jalote, who is one of a rare breed of ‘Thinker Doers’ in our country, shares the roadmap for building strong research universities in India. Anyone involved in higher education can benefit from this book!
This book, based on the insights from Pankaj Jalote’s success in developing an India-based research university in IIIT-Delhi, offers many lessons for building a research-based HE system, which is innovative and cutting-edge as new India grows into a knowledge-based economy.
Knowledge without action is meaningless. Pankaj embodies this value principle at its best. He built a first-rate institution and has now put down his insights into a book through a larger perspective. This is a much-needed book that should be mandatory reading for educators, policymakers and anyone interested in learning about the right way to take higher education forward across the globe.
Higher education in India is huge and complex. Professor Jalote, an educator, researcher and an institution-builder who is admired for the way he brought up IIIT-Delhi, makes an effort to unravel it and presents a vision for building future universities and how our institutions can stay relevant.
The analysis presented in this book thoughtfully reveals the origins, forms and effects of the underperformance of Indian higher education system, together with many signposts for turning things around.
This is a comprehensive book that provides a foundation for understanding research universities and suggests ways to make them internationally competitive. A must-read for everyone interested in Indian research universities and their future.
Jalote’s argument for improving the research culture and ethics in Indian institutions is compelling. He makes a strong case for encouraging them to become research universities through scale, funding, by both government and industry, and impact. He calls for a higher expectation from and deeper support of universities. Listen to him.
For thriving in the knowledge-based global economy, India needs to enhance its quality, relevance and diversity of research. This book, written by someone who has built a fine research university himself, can help all the stakeholders of our HE system in understanding and implementing the structures and processes required to develop world-class universities.
In this powerfully argued book, Pankaj Jalote provides a primer for policymakers, university leaders and their governing bodies on fostering a high-quality research culture—a necessary prerequisite for Indian universities to take their place among their global peers. Essential reading from someone who has spent the past decade successfully building a research-intensive institution from scratch.
IIIT-Delhi has become a world-class institution in a short time due to the vision, passion and commitment of Pankaj Jalote. Building Research Universities in India will help readers learn what it takes to build an institution while remaining focused on the vision and borrowing best practices globally.
India needs many more research universities which can reach the global standard of excellence in innovation, invention and academic research. Pankaj Jalote’s new book offers comprehensive guidance to build successful research institutions. This is a welcome book on an important topic which will be useful for all universities and thinkers.
Jayant V. Narlikar once stated, ‘Just as a teacher who does not add to his knowledge through research becomes stale, so can a researcher devoid of teaching experience become sterile.’ A potent system of higher education must, therefore, lay equal emphasis on teaching and research. Pankaj Jalote’s book serves as a practical guide and roadmap for translating this idea into action.
