The Kvarner Health Tourism Cluster has signed a business cooperation with the All India Institute of Ayurveda, an autonomous organization under the Ministry of AYUSH of the Republic of India. This new business collaboration, signed on Wednesday, October 6, is the result of a shared desire to strengthen and further develop collaboration between the Cluster and the Indian Ministry in the study of traditional systems of medicine, especially in the area of Ayurveda.
Academic cooperation between the two sides will include participation in research, lectures, workshops and other such activities on Ayurveda, as well as the development of academic standards for Ayurvedic education in Croatia. Namely, the Ministry of AYUSH of the Republic of India (Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa-Rigpa and Homoeopathy - abbreviated AYUSH) aims to educate, research and expand indigenous alternative systems of medicine in India, and cooperation with the Kvarner Health Tourism Cluster is the first such in Croatia.
"Considering that one of the goals of the Cluster is to connect members with international partners for a more comprehensive offer of health and tourism products, but also to educate members of the Association, we believe that this business cooperation with the Indian Ministry opens a new opportunity to connect our 32 members with potential partners from India. In addition to improving the health and tourism offer in Kvarner, in this way we will work with new partners on education, training and building and strengthening competencies," said the president of the Cluster, Dr. Vladimir Mozetič.
