India-UK Science Networks

In 2002, the UK Office of Science and Innovation (OSI) signed a bilateral agreement with the Department of Science and Technology (DST), India making funding available to establish a networking scheme which aimed to initiate and develop enduring partnerships between the UK and Indian scientists. Under each agreement, both sides agreed upon the need to bring together their most excellent scientists in any field of science and technology.

Funding is now available from the Royal Society to continue to support the establishment of networking grants between the UK and India. The scheme falls under the umbrella of the UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI).
