Award of UGC-UKIERI grant

last modified Jul 28, 2014 09:16 PM

Dr Shailaja Fennell at the Centre of Development Studies was awarded funding for a collaborative research initiative with the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras. The project will aim to understand how bottlenecks that limit Internet access for rural agricultural production and community based tourism can be removed.

The UKIERI awards are part of the largest ever education initiative between the the United Kingdom and India, and to date has committed over £25 million since its inception in 2006. The awards aim to strengthen engagement between institutions in the two countries by directly supporting research as well as by promoting two-way mobility for students, post-docs, and faculty.

We are delighted and proud to see that the Centre has gone from no.8 (2015) to no.6 (2016) to no.4 (2017) in the field of Development Studies in the QS Survey. This would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work from everyone within the Centre.

Message from the director: You will be pleased to know that we have moved up from 8 in 2015 to 6 this year in the QS world ranking for Development Studies. This is a remarkable result and a great tribute to the tremendous efforts of the whole team of teachers and administrators. It's a fantastic result! Professor Peter Nolan
