Cambridge-India research collaborations awarded funding

Award of UGC-UKIERI grant

Dr Shailaja Fennell at the Centre of Development Studies was awarded funding for a collaborative research initiative with the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras. The project will aim to understand how bottlenecks that limit Internet access for rural agricultural production and community based tourism can be removed.

The UKIERI awards are part of the largest ever education initiative between the the United Kingdom and India, and to date has committed over £25 million since its inception in 2006. The awards aim to strengthen engagement between institutions in the two countries by directly supporting research as well as by promoting two-way mobility for students, post-docs, and faculty.
