"We have plenty of them. We have about 83 agreements on research collaboration with various countries. We have committed USD 180 million on a five year budget with six countries..", DST Secretary T Ramasami told PTI here.

Of the total figure, he said US and Australia have jointly put USD 125 million with India. "It is several instruments of collaboration which have been built on common front", Ramasami said adding the agreements were aimed at promoting "research collaboration" between the countries.

Noting that 10 years ago India had signed similar research agreements with the United States, he said last year it was signed between Russia and the Germany.

From researchers point of view, he said, "India is not looked as a donor or a giver (in a collaboration), but they are looked at as a partner..". Earlier, delivering his address on "Successful Indo-French Science and Technology Cooperation", he said there was a proposal to set up a Common Institute for undertaking research studies on water.

"It is coming up at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. It is not a separate entity. It is a virtual institution, where scientists from France and India work together",he said. Stating that the scientists at the Centre would work on "advanced research technologies", he said "today's science becomes, tomorrow's technology."
