Integrated Long Term Programme of Cooperation (ILTP) in Science & Technology between India and Russian Federation is one of the most exhaustive bilateral collaborative R&D programmes, covering all aspects of science and technology. While there is an emphasis on applied research to seek technology transfer, but basic research is also equally important component of the programme. ILTP cooperation agreement was initially signed in Moscow on 3rd July 1987 between India and the former USSR by the then Prime Minister of India and General Secretary of CPSU. Later in the 4th meeting of ILTP Joint Council held at Moscow in April 1 992, the programme was adopted as that between India and Russia.
