Alumni gathering New Delhi, India
8 Feb 2008
Coinciding with the Map India 2008 conference, the ITC Alumni India Meet was held on Friday, 8 February 2008. The Meet was organised at Greater Noida, an ultra modern township near Delhi.
Apart from exchanging pleasantries, the alumni discussed the various issues regarding the ITC and Alumni interaction, and possible ways of strengthening the Alumni Association.
It was noted that these days NFP fellowships were quite scarce and that other funding possibilities need to be pursue for Indian students.
A strong suggestion was made to tap the resources in the now emerging private sector economy in the country for sponsoring candidates for higher education and short courses at ITC.
The Meet was attended, among others, by Maj Gen R. S. Tanwar, Surveyor General of India; Brig R. Sivakumar, Convener, NSDI; Mr. P. S. Uttarwar, Director, Delhi Development Authority; and Prof. Dr. Mahavir, ITC Alumni Coordinator for India.
The ITC was represented by Dr. Ir. Luc Boerboom, Dr. Javier Martinez and Mr. John Horn.
