DDC Delhi has partnered with O. P. Jindal Global University (JGU) to strengthen evidence-based policy research on critical challenges facing Delhi. Through the strategic partnership, DDC Delhi aims to mentor and support budding public policy scholars and practitioners in conducting robust research that generates new ideas, bridges the gap between ideas and policy design, and leads to strong, inclusive, and thorough policy implementation.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the DDC Delhi and Jindal Global University (JGU), Sonipat, on May 13th, 2022 in the presence of DDC Delhi Vice Chairperson Shri Jasmine Shah. The partnership is aimed at promoting mutual understanding, academic exchange, and collaboration on policy research studies. DDC Delhi will support the university in carrying out time-bound policy research studies by promoting exchanges of students, faculty, and staff members.
The 3-year-long partnership enables JGU final year students to conduct their capstone project under the guidance of DDC Delhi on the Delhi Government’s initiatives for a duration of 4-5 months, between January and May every year. DDC Delhi will also enable the university’s students to gain direct practical experience by sharing details about other fellowships, internships, and capstone opportunities.
JGU faculty will also be invited to share their subject matter expertise during the orientation of the Delhi Government’s Chief Minister’s Urban Leaders Fellowship (CMULF) programme hosted by DDC Delhi.
