Ms Amruta Pradhan will be in the UK in the month of May, 2019 undertaking her research exchange with Dr.Tim Foster at The University of Manchester on "Establishing a collaborative network with investigators of Future Dams on the water-energy-food-environment trade-offs, economic impacts, and water governance".
Since inception, the IUKWC has provided this opportunity to 8 junior and 5 senior researchers from India and the UK to visit fellow scientists in the other country to exchange not only research ideas and methods, but also build and strengthen friendships and networks. This year, five exchanges have been facilitated, with three of the five being Junior Researchers. Here, the two researchers from the UK and one from India share their experiences beyond the research they went to carry out.
