Bilateral International Cooperation in the field of Research and Education in Agriculture and Allied Areas
Bilateral International cooperation in DARE-ICAR has been operating through the MoUs/Work Plans signed between DARE/ICAR with various countries/International Organisations/Foreign Universities and Institutes. In such cases of bilateral international cooperation the MoUs are signed either between the Government of India (represented by DARE) and the Government of another country (represented by their department handling agriculture), or between the ICAR and another foreign autonomous body/Institute/University. DARE-ICAR also participate in the MoUs/Work Plans signed by the Department of Agriculture & Cooperation, which plays the nodal role.
Over and above the aforementioned modalities, DARE-ICAR also participates through programmes of cooperation developed by the Ministry of Science and Technology with various countries and international organisations.
