Prof Sandra Hollis Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Anglia Ruskin University, appreciated the development of agro-economy and industrial economy in Haryana and showed interest in collaboration in socio-cultural and economic fields and entrepreneurship. She also mentioned other areas like medical education, public health and said that they would like to collaborate with the Mahila Medical College of Khanpur Kalan. Prof. Mariann Backer, Head of International Relations, St. Marry University College, Twikenham was keen on collaboration in the fields of teachers’ training, staff development, innovation and change, communication skills and sports. Mr Hooda assured that the state government would extend all possible help to facilitate collaboration in research work and student exchange programme, in different fields. Mrs Pankaj Mittal, Vice-Chancellor, Mahila Vishwavidyalaya, Khanpur Kalan, Sonipat, who accompanied the delegation  said that a delegation of 15 Indian Vice-Chancellors had visited UK last September, and on 14th and 15th February a workshop was organised in New Delhi by the UGC, British Council for UK, and Indian universities.
