Academic Alliances

As a market leader in a knowledge economy, TCS believes in investing in early stage research to drive innovation. We have formed alliances with reputed academic institutions globally to encourage new developments in the area of research. Our academic alliance program, a part of the TCS Co-Innovation Network ( COINTM ) results in promising ideas which stem from pure technology research and real-world scenarios.  



The academic alliance program works at several levels: it includes university-based research parks and incubators, short and long-term research agreements, and faculty and industry personnel exchange programs. We also offer the popular Research Scholar Program that attracts doctoral research scholars from all over India.
