India

We work closely with the UK Research and Innovation India Office to enable strong research collaborations in areas of strategic importance to both the UK and India. Facilitated by the RCUK India Office we have established a number of joint initiatives with the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Department for Atomic Energy (DAE) in India.

DST is one of three departments under the Ministry of Science and Technology, which supports research and innovation in science and engineering. DAE reports directly to the Prime Minister of India.
