“One of the remarkable aspects shared between India and the US extends beyond mere brilliance or operational technological entrepreneurial spirit. The 4Ps: Peace, prosperity, planet, and people are central to the US mission in India, supplemented by the 5th P, which is the principle. Presently, what eludes us is the construction of a robust social community. I highly value education that fosters social cohesion—a space for learning discourse, engaging in debate, and respectfully acknowledging disagreement. Cultivating a sense of belonging is paramount; we must actively cultivate it," said Eric Garcetti, the U.S. Ambassador to India, who stressed the importance of collaborations between nations and institutions to propel innovation.

The event also saw various panel discussions on topics that emphasised higher education, the potential of AI, Edtech, skilling and much more.
