Royal Society launches India programme

The Yusuf and Farida Hamied Foundation has made a gift to Britain's national science academy, the Royal Society to foster international collaboration between researchers in India and the UK.

On 16 June, the academy announced that the donation would be used to create a five-year programme to strengthen scientific ties between the two countries.

The gift from Yusuf Hamied, chairman of the Indian drug giant Cipla, will allow senior academics from India and the Royal Society to develop links between their research teams by visiting to each other’s countries and arranging scientific meetings on topics of shared importance.
