INDO-RUSSIAN INTEGRATED LONG TERM PROGRAMME [ILTP]
Integrated long term programme of cooperation in Science and Technology known as ILTP was jointly initiated at the apex level by the former PM and the then General Secretary of CPSU in 1987. ILTP became one of the most exhaustive S & T collaborative programme that India and the former Soviet Union ever entered into with another country. Consequent upon the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the programme continued between India and Russia as most of the participating scientific institutes and scientists are from Russia. ILTP has remained a flagship programme amongst international programmes in science and technology. Considering the benefit which has accrued from the programme and the vast potential available it has been agreed by the two sides to extend the programme by another decade with a focus on technology transfer.
ILTP comprises of cooperation in 11 thrust areas related to frontiers of S & T namely:
and seven selected areas of basic research in science, namely:
INDO-RUSSIAN CENTRE FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY [IRCB]
Under the umbrella of Indo-Russian Integrated Long Term Programme (ILTP) in Science & Technology, several joint R & D projects are being implemented. Russian institutions have been offering technologies for commercialisation in India. Similarly, Indian side has been offering technologies developed in India for validation and commercialisation in Russia. Technology transfer activities in engineering materials, electronics, laser science and technology, catalysis, space science and technology has been significant
Biotechnology over the years has emerged as a frontline area of mutual interest and benefit amongst the two countries. While deliberating on these issues, the sub-working group on biotechnology in its meeting held on 8th December, 1999 endorsed the view of the ILTP joint council that there is a need to establish a joint Indo-Russian centre for biotechnology (IRCB) as centres of excellence with a clear objective on networking and co-ordinating various activities under Indo-Russian collaboration in biotechnology. The Sub-Working group on biotechnology during its third meeting in June, 2000 in Moscow also strongly recommended the proposal. Prof. MM Joshi, the Minister for Science and Technology announced it formally during his visit to Russia in July, 2000.
The agreement for establishment of this centre was formally concluded on 5th November 2001 in Moscow during the visit of the Indian Prime Minister to Russia between the Department of Science & Technology on the Indian side and the Russian Academy of Sciences on the Russian side.
The centre was inaugurated by Prof. MM Joshi at Allahabad on 23rd December 2001.
