With the IIT (ISM) Dhanbad’s mature and illustrious research capabilities and Capgemini’s deep focus around industry-oriented techno-functional business models, the project aims to deliver innovative cross-sectoral solutions to help our clients get the future they want.”

Through such open innovation collaborations, Capgemini aims to develop synergies with premier academic and research institutions in India and tap into the collective power of outside-in innovations, co-creating solutions for real world business challenges, and at the same time helping academia connect with contextual business requirements while enhancing industry knowledge in their student community.

Prof. Rajiv Shekhar, Director, IIT (ISM) Dhanbad, said“I am delighted with our collaboration with Capgemini as it will expose our students to state-of-the-art AI, IOT and other technologies. Collaboration with Capgemini will also support our faculty to integrate real-life case studies of the implementation of Intelligent Industry technologies in the academic curriculum. Moreover, Capgemini and IIT (ISM) Dhanbad will jointly work to solve current challenges of key industries.”

Capgemini is at the forefront of instilling an innovative mindset in students through industry exposure, and by providing them with deep technical expertise to make them future ready. This collaboration around MBSE to help drive the Intelligent Industry is one the trending themes in the global business community, predominately in automotive and aerospace.
