Newton Fund launch first UK-India call

The Newton Fund is part of the UK’s official development assistance. Its aim is to develop science and innovation partnerships that promote the economic development and welfare of developing countries.

As part of the Newton fund, the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Indian Department of Biotechnology (DBT) are inviting proposals for joint research between India and the UK. 

The MRC will allocate up to £3.5million for this programme, which will be matched by DBT. This programme is expected to fund up to three partnerships for a period of three years.
