Vodafone Idea joins ICRIER to create a center of excellence in telecommunications

”The CoE (Centre of Excellence) will bring together stakeholders from the government, academia and industry on a common platform to facilitate the development of a coordinated policy response to emerging technology and business trends for India’s telecom sector,” the statement said.

Vodafone Idea has collaborated with Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER) to set up a telecom Center of Excellence. The centre has been named InViCT (ICRIER and Vodafone Idea Center for Telecom), which will drive research advisory and policy support endeavors, as per an assertion. Announcing the alliance between Vodafone Idea (VIL) and ICRIER to set up InViCT, the assertion further noticed that its core exploration will focus in on the broader areas of policies, regulation and practice related with telecom and related areas, including information and communication technology.

It will also provide a forum for sharing insights with the industry, government, regulators and other academic institutes through regular workshops and round table meetings.

“An MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) to this effect was signed in the national capital recently between Deepak Mishra, Director and CEO, ICRIER, and P Balaji, Chief Regulatory and Corporate Affairs Officer, Vodafone Idea Limited,” it said.

As India takes a leap into the 5G era, there is a need to enhance the talent pool, create an environment of technology innovation, secure and manage the national information infrastructure and ensure economic upliftment through increased connectivity.

“InViCT envisages to bridge this gap by identifying and capturing the best practices, knowledge creation and sharing, and addressing the needs of regulation, policy and governance impacting the Indian telecom sector,” the statement said.

Going forward, InViCT may also tie up with the government recognised incubators to promote research.

The New Delhi-based centre will be governed and managed by the board under the co-chairmanship of the leadership nominees from ICRIER and VIL. The board includes senior representatives from the Department of Telecom, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India and industry body Cellular Operators’ Association of India (COAI).
