For over a decade, Dr. Pandya has been collaborating with the Prime Educational institutions of the Baltic Nations in identifying their Origin with that of India. With their joint efforts, the first Baltic Study Center of Asia was also established in the year 2014 in the campus of DSVV, wherein various evidences of Indian culture are being traced in the Baltic culture so that comprehensive study of Sanatan culture can be made. To date, 50 plus students and faculties have participated in the exchange programs organized by this center at various times. Prominent among these exchanges have been Erasmus Plus Mobility Programs, under which students participated in the exchange of entire sessions. Erasmus Plus Exchange Program has great importance in the European nations. In one such exchange program, a student had the opportunity to pursue her entire funded research work at the University of Kazimierz Welki, Poland.

DSVV has signed MOU with more than 55 reputed Universities across the globe and is working to spread the thoughts of Param Pujya Gurudev Pandit Shri Ram Sharma Acharya ji worldwide. Being conferred upon with the title by the Managing Committee is a proud moment not only for AWGP and DSVV but also for the whole of India.
