Expected Impact Of The Project

  • CABCIN will fill a substantial gap in current quality of teaching in India by establishment the Capacity Building Centers. It will generate sustainable solution of this kind in India and contribute to transfers of innovation and knowledge across regional, institutional and sectoral boundaries.
  • The outcomes of the project will be used by 4 main target groups: university academics, graduate students, prospective university members and employers.
  • CBC web platform will generate increased interaction between HEIs and employers and organisations, measurable through the development of new collaborations. This will be done through inviting entrepreneurs for organised open workshops, conferences to share their know-how and reach potential employees
  • The Capacity Building Center website repository for promoting and supporting activities undertaken in the project, as well as for supporting organizations engaged in the work of the project will support further dissemination, exploitation and sustainability.
  • The establishment of public website will allow for new teachers to develop practice which in turn will be added to the resources, thereby furthering the central concern with capacity-building.
  • The CABCIN project will also benefit at EU level as an example of good practices in collaboration with Indian HEIs. This will promote Indian HEIs as qualified and innovative partner
