Since, the government does not interfere in the academic matters of higher educational institutions, it is left to these institutions to collaborate and to identify the courses and areas to be offered thorough the Meta University. It is reported by Vice Chancellor, Jawaharlal Nehru University that in a meeting held between these institutions, the areas of climate change, public health and education have been identified.
The Meta Universities represent 2nd Generation Universities, free from physical boundary conditions and able to operate in virtual space, taking advantage of the innovation and flexibility possible in such domain. Hence, the existing capabilities and resources of these institutions will be utilized and no separate funding for these institutions is proposed for the purpose.
However, it is expected that these institutions will commence its course offering from next academic session onwards said Dr.D Purandeshwari, the Minister of State for Human Resource Development in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha on Wednesday.
