French multinational Thales and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to create a jointly supervised IIT Bombay-CNRS PhD fellowship scheme starting July 2016.

Through this fellowship scheme, Thales and IIT Bombay seek to fortify the Indo-French scientific collaboration including cross-cooperation between laboratories and R&D (Research & Development) for industrial applications.

Sudents selected for the jointly-supervised PhD fellowships will have a PhD supervisor in India and a co-supervisor in France (from one of the identified CNRS laboratories). The programme will provide IIT Bombay students with the opportunity to conduct a part of their research project in both countries in areas of expertise such as advanced electronics and electromagnetics or complex system engineering.
