Water quality in India - Scoping workshop

NERC and the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) are inviting applications from UK scientists to attend a jointly organised workshop with the Indian Department of Science & Technology (DST), in Delhi on 17-18 November 2016.

Over two days the aims of the workshop will be:

  • To define the scope of a potential new UK/India interdisciplinary programme focused on research contributing to improved water quality, and through this support the economic development and welfare of India.
  • To facilitate links between the UK and Indian research communities in the area of water quality research.

Applications from researchers working in the fields of water quality, water engineering and related disciplines are welcome. It is expected that approximately 20 participants from across the NERC and EPSRC research communities will be invited. NERC and EPSRC will try to ensure a balance of different disciplines/expertise and the number of attendees from the same institution.

DST will be inviting India based researchers to participate in this joint workshop.

Reasonable travel and subsistence expenses for UK participants attending the workshop will be covered.

If you would like to apply to attend the workshop event, please complete the online registration form.

The deadline for applications is 16:00 16 September 2016. Submission of the online application form will be taken as indicating availability on the dates of the workshop. Invited participants will be notified in the week commencing 19 September 2016.
