Water Lilies

The aim of the India-UK Water Centre (IUKWC) is to promote cooperation and collaboration between NERC-MoES water security research in order to establish a platform for, and legacy of, long-term partnerships and dialogue between Indian and UK water researchers, water policy-makers and water businesses. 

User Engagement Initiative

IUKWC, under its User Engagement Initiative (UEI) programme will be hosting an event in early 2018 to engage with regional level water policy and management bodies for Improving freshwater monitoring frameworks and data for research and management. Targeted activities will be conducted by a panel of experts which has been selected based on their expertise and IUKWC Open Network Profile. The event is by invitation only due to its small size and targeted nature.

Dates: 23rd – 25th January 2018

Location: Kochi, Kerala, India
