A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for collaboration between All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Bhopal and the National Institute of Design, Madhya Pradesh (NID MP)located at Bhopal was signed today on 20th September 2021. Both fall under the category of the Institutes of National Importance (INI) under the Central Government. 

Prof Sarman Singh, Director and CEO of AIIMS Bhopal and Prof Dhiraj Kumar, Director of NID MP jointly signed the MoU. Through this MoU, the two institutes will collaborate within any mutually agreeable field of research and education, undertake joint projects and develop competency & infrastructure for the needs of servicing industry in specific areas. 

AIIMS Bhopal under the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW), is a premier healthcare institute, created with a vision towards promotion of health in the central region of the country. Research, Healthcare and Training remain the key mandates for its functioning. Innovation and design in the above fields will be facilitated through this MoU, which will have a long-lasting impact in the lives of our patients, through development of more effective healthcare delivery tools. 

NID Madhya Pradesh is one among the four newer NIDs, that have been set up in Madhya Pradesh (Bhopal), Andhra Pradesh (Amaravati), Assam (Jorhat) and Haryana (Kurukshetra), as part of the action plan under National Design Policy. In early 2007, Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (erstwhile Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion), Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Govt. of India had envisioned the National Design Policy aimed at creating a design-enabled innovation economy and strengthening design education in the country. The National Design Policy had recommended setting up design institutes on the lines of NID, Ahmedabad in various parts of India to promote design programmes.

Design forms an essential aspect of human lives and any efficient product or service require both the functional and aesthetic aspects to be addressed. Establishing new NIDs as Institutions of National Importance in different geographical regions of the country will help produce highly skilled manpower in design which, in turn, will create job opportunities, both direct and indirect, by providing sustainable design interventions for crafts, handloom, rural technology, small, medium and large-scale enterprises; and outreach programmes for capacity, capability and institution building.

This MoU will accelerate product and facility development for healthcare sector. The vision of the Directors of both the Institutes will pave way, for the future collaboration between experts from both the Institutes and open new avenues for growth.
