Welcome address by MARIHE Academic director at TIET
"The global systems of research and innovation are in flux, and the demands by which the higher education systems are confronted have regional roots and futures. The social responsibility of institutions, within the higher education arena described as third mission, comes together in the international field trip of MARIHE programme to the Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology, as part of Thapar University, located in Patiala.
