Dr Joanna Newman, Director of the UK Higher Education International Unit at Universities UK, said: "This is the largest higher education delegation which has accompanied the Prime Minister to India. It showcases the strength of UK higher education and our commitment to deepen our engagement. There is already close collaboration on innovation in teaching, research, developing links with industry as well as through two-way staff and student exchanges. This visit has enabled us to develop these connections further."
On Monday the education delegation visited St Xavier's College, Mumbai, to hold a roundtable discussion on education and employment and on Tuesday there was a further roundtable on innovation and education followed by a visit to Janki Devi Memorial College in Delhi.
During the summit Prime Ministers Cameron and Singh also announced the third call for proposals under the UK India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI), which has supported 200 partnerships since 2010.
However, work is underway across government to achieve these ambitions, including progress on more than 250 measures as part of the Growth Review. Developing an Industrial Strategy gives new impetus to this work by providing businesses, investors and the public with more clarity about the long-term direction in which the government wants the economy to travel.
