New Delhi: An agreement was signed between IIT Delhi and the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) under which projects would be launched that would aim to give “scientific validation” to the ancient medical science and integrate it with technology. The projects would be funded by the Ayush Ministry.

Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the faculties of IIT Delhi and AIIA will work together in the projects to look at ways to integrate technology with Ayurveda. It is an attempt to give scientific validation to Ayurveda, said IIT Delhi Director V R Rao, who signed the agreement along with AIIA Director Tanuja Nesari.

“Ayurveda is often associated with religion, where in reality, they have nothing to do with it. Ayurveda is a science and the agreement signed with IIT Delhi is an attempt to integrate it with technology,” he said.

Ayush Minister Shripad Yesso Naik underlined the need to work towards promoting the benefits of Ayurveda to a worldwide audience. He also expressed hope that the agreement would integrate technology in the Ayurveda sector.
