The aim of Phase 1 (2006- 2011) of the programme was to establish UKIERI as a framework to enable a step-change in the UK-India relationship on education and research. Phase 2 (2011-2016) focused on thematic areas agreed by both countries which included Leadership Development, Innovation Partnerships, Skills Development and Enhancing Mobility. UKIERI Phase 3 (2016 – 2021) launched in April 2016.
UKIERI is funded from the UK by Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, British Council, Scottish Government, Welsh Government and Department for Employment and Learning; and from India by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Department for Science and Technology, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Ministry of Labour and Employment, University Grants Commission and All India Council for Technical Education.
