Research Policy & Development


EU-India Platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities

The EU-India Platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities brought together research funding and support organisations in Europe and India in order to develop a stronger strategic partnership. Europe and India have strong historical links, but its research collaboration relationships are relatively new. EqUIP builds upon the successful partnerships developed at the European level, using the NORFACE and HERA European Research Area Networks (ERA-NETs), as well as existing INDIGO projects as a focus for expanding interactions with India.
The platform supported agencies across Europe and India in stepping up international collaboration: through sharing best practice, networking, and the closer coordination of existing collaborative activities and the establishment of new relationships. It maps existing collaborative activity with the aim of identifying barriers and challenges to effective research co-operation, as well as identifying opportunities and priorities for future research collaboration.
