About the blog

Welcome to the University of Edinburgh’s India blog – your window to a range of exciting events, activities and research projects taking place throughout India in 2017.

India is a tremendously important country for the University.

We welcomed our first Indian student to the Scottish capital in the 1870s.

Today, students and staff from Edinburgh are working in partnership with some of the most innovative people and organisations across India, sharing ideas and developing solutions to a range of challenges.

We will be aiming to develop relationships with existing academic partners and embark on new ventures with some of India’s leading institutions in 2017.

A range of events and meetings over the year will provide us with an opportunity to maximise awareness of our academic, teaching and research partnerships in India and reach a range of people throughout the region.
