In an attempt to strengthen education ties with India, a number of initiatives have been announced by the British government for a holistic growth of the education sector.
The campaign — ‘Study UK: Discover You’ – was launched by British Science Minister Jo Johnson. He said that India continues to be a key science partner for the UK and the collaboration between the two countries is for better future of science and innovation.
It is expected that the new campaign will render substantial platform for the active participants to boost decision makings through social media and online research.
“Through the Newton Fund, we’re working together to improve the lives of millions across the world… We are continuing to look at opportunities to expand this partnership to include funding for social science and humanities programmes,” Johnson said.
“The partnership between UK and India cuts across all segments of the education sector, therefore, there is a need to bring together the best practices from both countries to strengthen this bond,” said British Council Director Alan Gemmell.
