Dr Hollander: In Australia too we have to depoliticise the science and bureaucracy. I think we should not wait only for the govt funding but look at various other means.
Q: What is your vision for the respective organizations?
Dr Pachauri: We have now decided to expand ourselves and set campuses in the other parts of the country. India being a populist country, we have to necessarily take our activities out of Delhi. Our focus areas will be energy and health. We will also internationalize our efforts. Diaken partnership is one of the significant and focussed one. With other universities, we have had limited partnerships. Though valuable but here we share common mission.
Dr Hollander: Australia is a vast country with paucity of human resources. Therefore to stay relevant, we need to be in partnerships. We need to see the world from other perspective and the research might be relevant to what we do.
