Nalanda University's revival to balance local and global research!!!

India's Nalanda International University, coming up close to the site of Asia's ancient Buddhist centre of higher education, will be a global institution focusing on research, pan-Asian integration, sustainable development and the revival of Oriental languages. At the same time, it will study local issues of environment, agriculture and livelihoods.

Member of Parliament Nand Kishore Singh, who is a member of Nalanda's governing body, said the university which will admit its first intake in 2014, will balance local and global research goals. In 2006 China, India, Singapore, Japan and Thailand announced a plan to revive the renowned university, which existed in the northern Indian state of Bihar from the 5th century.

Until it was ransacked and burnt to the ground in 1193 by Turkish invaders. The new university will also be residential, offering courses in science, philosophy and spiritualism along with social sciences. Last month the university published invitations for applications for research fellowships from scholars and researchers from any country, shedding light on the main areas of research.

Nobel laureate Amartya Sen, who was last year appointed the new university's chancellor, has said there will be seven postgraduate schools, including a school of peace studies and international relations.  The university has already identified 60 villages with which it will work to improve livelihoods, promote sustainable agricultural practices to improve productivity, start eco-tourism and impart skills training to the local population.
