Ben Sowter, the Research Director at QS said “Indian Universities if they wish to compete with the dominant Chinese system need to implement frameworks that encourage the production of high impact research. Creating extensive International research networks allows collaboration, and ensures that research receives a wider reach. Doing so will assist India’s best Universities as they attempt to become more globally competitive”.
