Trilateral Research in Partnership (TRIP) Awards under UK India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI)

The UK India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) started in April 2006 with the aim of enhancing educational links between India and the UK. In recognition of the substantial achievements and building on the success of this initiative in the first five years, the programme has been extended for another five years from 2011 to 2016.
Under the 2nd phase of UKIERI a new Trilateral Research in Partnership (TRIP) Awards was recently announced with the United States.  Ten awards of up to £50,000 (USD $75,000) in funds will be available to support multidisciplinary research projects between UK, US and Indian higher education institutions. This trilateral award aims to support the increase of mobility of PhD and post-doctoral students in all three countries, and develop sustainable institutional links. Proposals have been invited across subject areas, including the humanities, social sciences, science and technology, and multidisciplinary research projects. Deadline for submission of proposal is on 13th April, 2012.
