Research and innovation collaboration between the United Kingdom and India has yielded 258 projects worth around 330 million pounds, according to a new study released on Thursday by the United Kingdom Research and Innovation (UKRI) India.
Research and innovation partnerships between the UK and India have a real-world impact, the authors claim in their paper, and they also point to future potential for bilateral cooperation. It examines joint research and innovation projects between India and UKRI, a UK government non-departmental organization.
British High Commissioner to India Alex Ellis stated, “I appreciate this study, which highlights how science and innovation contribute to the UK and India’s deep cooperation and joint efforts to enhance people’s lives in both our countries and beyond.
The paper lists almost 200 technical outcomes and consequences of the UKRI India collaboration, including 84 new databases and 20 new pieces of software.
“The collaborative funding between UKRI and India produced 258 projects. As the study points out, the total joint investment of GBP 330 million equals more than 150 million pounds from the UK and Indian governments.
As a result of these research programs, almost GBP 450 million has been raised in additional financing from public agencies, non-profit organizations, and commercial companies, demonstrating the importance of these initiatives. ‘The initiatives spanned a wide variety of topics from heritage to renewable energy, yielding many outputs in many formats and scholarly and societal effect in many different forms,’ the report adds.’
Elsevier Pvt Ltd’s impact report is a testament to the collaboration between the UK and Indian research and innovation communities tackling common problems.
As demonstrated by our India and UK relationships, research and innovation collaboration play an essential role in identifying sustainable solutions. This report documents this, says UKRI’s International Champion Professor Christopher Smith.
We look forward to expanding on our successes in the years to come by sharing our knowledge and skills through collaborations, he said in India, the United Kingdom, and worldwide.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and Sustainable Development Goal 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing) are at the center of over half of UKRI India’s publications.
Because of our relationship with Indian funders, we’ve been able to produce new knowledge and goods. “
Because of our united dedication to excellent research and innovation on both sides, lives are being transformed. For this reason, I am happy to announce that we are working with our Indian donors to identify additional areas of focus that are aligned with our shared 2030 Roadmap for future relations between the UK and India”.
This year’s COP26 climate summit in Glasgow is one of eight new collaborative projects covered by the new priority areas on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.
To be carried out by teams of UK and Indian researchers over the next six months to investigate one or more topics about climate adaptation and resilience linked to the COP26 Adaptation Action.
Great to see success of UKRI – India research and innovation relationship: 258 projects with joint investment of c£330m! We're proud to have delivered the report showing how India and UK partnerships play a vital role in discovering sustainable solutions: https://t.co/5LYjmvX8OQ— Elsevier (@ElsevierConnect) October 1, 2021
