The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) works to create and sustain an environment conducive to the development of India, partnering industry, Government, and civil society, through advisory and consultative processes.
As an industry organization working closely with the government and academia to address their issues and concerns, in 2011, CII enlarged the scope of the University-Industry Council into AICTE-CII University-Industry Congress (referred to as U-I Congress) as a step in the direction of bridging the gap between academia and industry which is at the root of the employability problem. Both AICTE and CII have been undertaking various initiatives to improve academia-industry relations under the U-I Congress. U-I Congress strives to stimulate industry-academia collaborations through organization of workshops, global & national conferences.
