Swinburne University, the first Australian University to offer taught programmes in the niche of entrepreneurship and development, announced its first ever entrepreneur-in-residence. Chaitan Maini was declared the entrepreneur in residence by Victorian Premier Ted Bailieu and Professor Linda Kristajanson, vice chancellor, Swinburne University of Technology.
The announcement was made in Bangalore during the Victorian Government's trade mission to India. "Maini's technical expertise and business acumen will help develop the Swinburne Electric Vehicle Group into a world-leading centre with cutting edge research that can be translated into industrial products, education and training," said Prof Kristajanson. Maini also founded the first electrical car company Reva in 1994. The Mahindra Groups of India acquired a majority stake in 2010. Today, Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles Pvt Ltd has the largest deployed fleet of electric vehicles in the world. The company also has a number of awards to its name including the one that named Maini as one of the Young Global Leaders for 2011 by the World Economic Forum. He was also awarded The Economist 2011 Innovation Award for Energy and the Environment. Maini and Professor Ajay Kapoor, associate dean of research, Swinburne's Faculty of Engineering and Industrial Sciences, will work in close collaboration. Both Prof Kristajonson and Maini signed a Memorandum of Understanding between Mahindra Reva, Swinburne and the Co-operative Research Centre for Advanced Automotive Technology (AutoCRC). This memorandum will further enhance research collaboration in the field of electric vehicles. The AutoCRC's participants are eight leading vehicle and component manufacturers, two state governments and ten research institutions.
