Who We are

The Academic Research and Development Association wouldn't exist without the commitment of those who further its broad range of activities - from the administration and expertise of top academics who sit on boards of directors and conference committees to the volunteers who extend their invaluable support and precious time to help during ARDA events.

ARDA is a confederation of leaders and opinion-makers from around the planet who have one thing in common - the desire to accelerate the advancement of science and technology through learning, collaboration and research.

Since please enter the year of founding, ARDA has been presenting innovative perspectives to present-day thought leaders and decision-makers as well as those of tomorrow by providing constructive environments for dialogue and exchange at the intersections of nation, culture and discipline.

who arda

The organization was founded specially for academics, students, educators and professionals as a politically independent, mission-driven organization dedicated to providing and promoting constructive dialogue independently across international borders. With the Indian sub-continent emerging as a new and powerful center of global events to rival the traditional Euro-American hegemonic axis and with different and conflicting nationalist fears and national political interests often leading to negative foreign policy-making, the stakes for ensuring cooperation between this region and the Western world has never been higher and ARDA's mission is more relevant than ever.

Since its inception, ARDA has been committed to ensuring that academic thought leaders and opinion-makers from the public and private sectors, education, media and business have the chance to engage with their colleagues from other nations and address matters of social and universal relevance and significance.

Through its international, intercultural and interdisciplinary conferences, research and publications, ARDA has become the hub of the information exchange network across the world, connecting individuals and institutions around the planet and today's opinion leaders with those of tomorrow.
