India and Israel officially setup diplomatic relations in 1992. Since then they have collaborated on a host of development issues like agriculture, space research, information Technology etc. There has also been a large component of people-to-people interaction.Both nations have a large pool of technically sound man power.
Yet, the strengths of their respective technical human resources are not the same. Israel has a certain niche in the technical field, India has another. The idea is to leverage the strengths of both nations and synergize them. This paper proposes institutionalizing Indo-Israeli collaboration in technical areas by opening an IIT in Israel and a Technion University campus in India. Both Indian and Israeli students will graduate together from both these Institutions. This paper discusses the various aspects of such collaboration.
