About Newton Bhabha Fund
The partnership with India is called the Newton-Bhabha Fund, one of the key bilateral initiatives in science, research, and innovation sector in the country. It has been instrumental in bringing together UK and Indian researchers to find joint solutions to global challenges and spiralling research and innovation capacity for long term sustainable growth and social welfare. Research and innovation subjects are chosen and developed by partners and funders from both countries, to ensure mutual benefit from the academic collaborations.
