It is a moment of pride for the city of Ahmedabad as India’s top-notch design school, National Institute of Design, established in 1961 ties up with the illustrious Ahmedabad Textile Industry’s Research Association. Both these institutions, at its foundation have been nurtured by the Sarabhai family of Ahmedabad. Gautam Sarabhai has a big role in the initial set up of NID, and the ATIRA has PadmaVibhushan Dr. Vikram Sarabhai as one of its founder. It is great to see these two institutes finding a common ground after decades of independent existence.

The MoU was signed by Dr Harish Bisht, Director of ATIRA and Shri Pradyumna Vyas, Director of NID to form the Materials & Product Innovation Centre (MAPIC), where both the institutions will share their knowledge and infrastructure facility for research, development and student welfare purposes. It will be housed at ATIRA and is expected to come into function soon.

Students and researchers from both the institutions will collaborate to create cost-effective, proficient, and user-friendly material for mass usage. This bonding will also enhance the efficiency of current collaborative programs especially the translational research in advanced compound substances with Natural/Synthetic Fibres that are applicable in the field of Automobile, construction, street furniture, temporary shelters, medical products. New startups in the area of composites will benefit as the MAPIC will lead the National Design Business Incubator of NID and Focus Incubation Centre of ATIRA to jointly incubate the aspirants.
