The IUKWC supported a range of activities that were targeted at enhancing interaction, discussion, and the building of collaborative research projects between Indian and UK water researchers.
Linking All Stakeholders
In order to promote the concepts of co-design and co-creation, the IUKWC facilitated specific events that brought together academics and stakeholders from grass-roots levels to state and national levels to discuss, share ideas and learn from one another. The ultimate goal was to enable collaborations that could lead to more science outputs that support policy- and decision-making.
The India-UK Water Centre (IUKWC) was a virtual joint centre established in 2016 and funded by the Indian Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) and the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
