Workshops

IUKWC workshops are held in either the UK or India and bring together scientists to: discuss the current state of knowledge in a particular area; identify the future requirements/ideas for joint research and/or provide training to exchange and further develop scientific skills in water security science.

Science Workshops are part of the bi-annual Open/Focused Calls for which the community can propose topics. The Centre Management Board, however, reserves the right to directly commission workshops where necessary to ensure a spread of activities or reflect current priorities at the time. Successful proposers of Workshops are responsible for running the event, defining its programme, helping select participants and producing outputs and reports. The Centre provides funding and logistical support and is involved in agreeing the programme, participants for the workshop and marketing of the event.

Open invitations for applications to attend the Centre’s workshops are published where appropriate. Participants are selected by Activity Leads based upon a prioritisation criteria. The criteria take account of the experience/relevance of the applicant’s research area, their motivation and expected contribution to the aims of the workshop and the likely benefit they will derive from attendance. The IUKWC also aims to ensure a spread of participants across organisations.

Workshops

The India-UK Water Centre is arranging a workshop on Enhancing Freshwater Monitoring through Earth Observation was held in Stirling, UK  19th – 21st June 2017.

19 Jun 2017 (All day) | 20 Jun 2017 (All day) | 21 Jun 2017 (All day)

The aims of the workshop were to bring together scientists to explore the scientific challenges involved in the production, translation, distribution and use of climate information and tools to inform decision making in the Indian and UK water sectors.
