India-UK Ties to Strengthen Education Sector

By Malavikka

In a move to strengthen the British and India relationship in the education sector, British Science Minister Jo Johnson has formulated a set of initiatives for its progress.

Speaking at the launch of the campaign 'Study UK: Discover You' at UK TECH Summit held in New Delhi on Wednesday, he said that the science and innovation's future relied in the team work between countries and that India continues to be a major partner in that regard to the United Kingdom (UK).

The campaign aimed to highlight the power of decision makings of students while using social media and online research. Explaining the importance of the ties and its opportunities, Johnson also announced the launch of a report on "the future of design education in India."

"As it emerges from the 'future of design education' report, there is an increased demand for designers from India to cater to a large potential market," said British Council Director Alan Gemmell.

"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."

The campaign is expected to unite India and UK for a positive outcome in the education sector. Johnson also launched the first annual £1 million Newton Prize, which will recognise the Newton Fund's best science or innovation that promote the economic development and social welfare of partner countries.

For 2017, the prize is open to existing Newton Fund programmes in India, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam which focus on the grand societal challenge of public health and well being, covering issues such as anti-microbial resistance, disease, healthcare, and nutrition.
