"EADS signed a letter of intent (LoI) with Indo-French Centre for the Promotion of Advanced Research at the India-France Technology Summit 2013 for creating a new innovation initiative called the 'EADS-CEFIPRA Aerospace Programme'," EADS said in a release.

"Under this programme, calls will be given to leading Indian universities and institutes to propose research projects for funding.
