Visit by Prof. Domènec Puig

Domenec Puig

Prof. Domènec Puig recently visited us from URV, Spain between December 29, 2019 – January 5, 2020.  Prof. Puig was my Ph.D. supervisor and is currently Vice-Rector of the URV, Spain for Academic Policy.  During his visit, Prof. Puig interacted with our director  Prof. Ranjan Bose and Dean (Academics) Prof. Anubha Gupta for exploring research and academic collaboration opportunities at the institute level. He also gave a talk on “Efficient Artificial Intelligent Models and their Applications to Healthcare Informatics”.  We also discussed the funding opportunities between Indian and the EU and agreed to create an Indo-EU consortium for seeking funding from the EU on capacity building in robotics and autonomous systems in India. It was a pleasure hosting him and his wife at IIIT-Delhi. His visit reminded me of my beautiful days during my Ph.D. in Spain. Looking forward to a fruitful collaboration again with Prof. Puig, this time in a different role 🙂
