UK - India collaborations

23 February 2015

The UK-India Research Seminar, hosted by the University of Leeds was held last week at Weetwood Hall. The seminar was a great success and has opened doors for new collaborations across a wide range of UK and Indian Institutions.

Dr Kevin Critchley organised the 2.5 day seminar and pulled together a range of speakers from across the UK in addition to the 5 delegates from India to discuss ‘Photo-responsive Functional Surfaces for Bio-Nano Applications in Healthcare’, with speakers including Leggett, Bushby, Singh, Evans, Turner, Mendes, Summers and Hariharan.  The meeting identified  a number of ideas that will serve as the basis for collaboration between researchers in the UK and India.

Funding for the seminar came from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) through the Royal Society and by the Department for Science and Technology (DST) India.
