SCES liaises with Symbiosis institutes which have been offering academic programmes for the past 50 years. SCES lays emphasis on facilitating people-to-people and institute-to-institute connections with Europe, bringing the best of scholarly expertise to India, and encouraging Symbiosis students, faculty and staff mobility to Europe for research projects and learning through partnerships. SCES is envisioned to be an umbrella support system for all academic/scholarly/generic activities with European nations/institutes.
