UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) started in April 2006 with the aim of enhancing educational linkages between India and the UK. Since then UKIERI has been recognized as a key multi-stakeholder programme that has strengthened the research, leadership, education and now skill sector relations between the two countries.
The programme focuses on bilateral and mutual benefits of the learners, researchers, scholars, fellows, skill sector professionals, leaders of higher education and further education institutions in India and UK. The two strands of UKIERI are:
- Research and Innovation
- Education and Training
