The UK government has launched a £4 million fund in India to support collaborative research into emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, big data, and other. This initiative is a part of the India-UK Technology Partnership, which was established in April 2018.
The fund will encourage industry and academia to collaborate and develop tech solutions for social, economic and environmental challenges in India.
The initiative is focused on two major tech clusters: artificial intelligence/ data in Karnataka and future mobility in Maharashtra. The successful bidders will likely have international partners, including from the UK.
