US Charge d'Affaires Kathleen Stephens Welcomes the First Class of International Innovation Corps Fellows
India and the US are natural partners and the world demands that the two nations cooperate, US diplomat Kathleen Stephens said Monday.
"Our ability to work together remains a foundation for strong partnership," Stephens, the charge d'affaires at the US embassy in India, said at the launch of the International Innovations Corps Leadership Speaker series of the University of Chicago centre here.
The International Innovations Corps (IIC) fellowship programme of the University of Chicago Center in Delhi aims to jump start the process of solution-based innovation in the Indian public sector.
Specifically, the IIC recruits, trains and send teams of recent University of Chicago and leading Indian university graduates to work on ambitious development projects with the Indian government for one year.
