NCAER and University of Michigan sign a five-year MOU with the University of Michigan Survey Research Centre
India’s oldest and largest economic think-tank, NCAER, the National Council of Applied Economic Research in New Delhi, signed a five-year Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Michigan’s Survey Research Center (SRC) to promote collaborative survey research. SRC is a global leader in survey methodology and technology, and is part of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research.
The MoU will promote cooperation in survey-based research, covering methodology, technology, and new research initiatives. Both institutions will jointly seek to develop sample survey infrastructure to support academically rigorous economic and other social science research in India. Other initiatives may include establishing a survey research laboratory at NCAER to test and advance new approaches for social science research and for training professionals in state-of-the-art, survey-based research methods. These cooperative activities are expected to benefit NCAER, University of Michigan faculty and students, and the larger empirical research community in India.
