The University, which is the sixth-oldest university in the English speaking world has made India a priority country and recently declared October 2 India day making it the first country which was celebrated in the campus. A key conference entitled Nation Building in India, which will take place in Kolkata on 19 and 20 February, will examine the role of government in relations between India and the UK. The University of Edinburgh has a long-standing connection with India, with its first Indian student graduating in 1876. The University will also establish new partnerships with the National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA), the Christian Medical College (CMC) in Vellore, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Anna University in Chennai and the Corbett Foundation in Mumbai. Topics as diverse as animal welfare, clean energy and genetics will be the focus of events in Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai and Mumbai. Scientists also hope that Edinburgh’s expertise in low-carbon innovation can support efforts to harness solar energy in the region.
There will also be presentations on using gene technology, pioneered at the University’s world-famous Roslin Institute, to help to tackle disease, as well as discussions on the role of women in education in India. These agreements will complement existing partnerships that include an agreement with the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (inStem) in Bangalore, which has resulted in significant advances in the treatment of autism and dementia. Other collaborations include the University of Edinburgh’s School of Informatics working with computer scientists across India.
The University recently established the Edinburgh India Institute, to encourage a greater awareness of India in Scotland. Professor Shea added “The historical ties between India and Scotland are very old and so is the link between Indian scholars and Edinburgh University.

Former president of India, Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam, who has inspired many youngsters, has been awarded an honorary degree by prestigious University of Edinburgh, Scotland for his outstanding and indispensable contribution to Science and technology and also for his commitment to helping transform India into a developed Nation by 2020.

Kalam, who served as the president of India from 2002 to 2007, received the degree during a dinner held in his honour on May 15, at the inaugural conference of the University’s Edinburgh India Institute.
The Edinburgh India Institute will help coordinate the work of Edinburgh academics who are working with a wide range of partners across India. The institute also aims to be a platform to bring together researchers from Scotland and India for mutual benefit including joint PhD programmes in diverse areas such as medicine or veterinary medicine, science and engineering and humanities and social sciences.
He played a pivotal organizational, technical and political role in Pokhran-II nuclear tests in 1998. A study of brain scanning techniques could identify patients whose brain tissue can be rescued after a stroke.
In the study patients across Scotland will be scanned three times in the month after their stroke, to determine whether any damaged brain tissue can be saved. The project is one example of the new multi-centre imaging trials made possible by SINAPSE – Scottish Imaging Network: A Platform for Excellence – a virtual brain imaging lab which launches in Edinburgh on 16 October (Thursday). Researchers from the Universities of Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow hope the project will improve scanning methods for stroke and further understanding of the chemical changes that take place in a stroke patient's brain.
This work, funded through the Translational Medicine Research Collaboration, could lead to development of a blood test that ambulance staff could use to tell how far a patient's stroke has progressed. SINAPSE is an initiative in imaging, involving the Universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Dundee, Glasgow, Stirling and St Andrews. It will also explore the role of women and migrant workers in the Indian economy and assess how treatment for malaria is evolving in Asia.
This year Edinburgh’s scholarship funding for Indian students will rise to almost ?1,00,000. There are also agreements between Edinburgh and the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Delhi University; the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS).

This included the University’s first India Day, in 2014, which was addressed by Gopalkrishna Gandhi, the eminent diplomat and grandson of Mahatma Gandhi. One of our oldest alumnus is Acharya Prafulla Chandra Ray, known as the father of Indian chemistry and founder of Bengal Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals in 1893.
This university adds new dimensions in its contributions which brings Scotland and India together, who share a rich past and a glorious heritage of civilization. Click on a number to find out more about each Partner or use the links at the bottom of the page.
For some patients, the damage caused by stroke is unfortunately permanent and irreversible. It has secured ?6.3m from the Scottish Funding Council (plus ?700k support from the Chief Scientist Office), and ?35m investment from the partner universities. We are a Cycle Friendly Employer!Four of the University's largest sites have now achieved Cycle Friendly Employer status. But for others, we could make a real difference if we could identify which areas of their brain are salvageable. Edinburgh University receives approximately 47,000 applications every year, making it the third most popular university in the UK by volume of applicants.
