Joint VJC meeting - Save the Date

At the beginning of 2016, BBSRC and DBT established four virtual joint centres (VJCs) on agricultural nitrogen between India and the UK: INEW, IUNFC, CINTRIN and NEWS. Following discussions with BBSRC and Indian partners, we have initiated to organise a conference and workshop for all four centres on the topic "Challenges and opportunities for agricultural nitrogen in India".

Date: 3-5 October, 2017
Location: New Delhi, India (conference venue to be confirmed)

The goals of the workshop:

  • To introduce the VJCs and project partners to each other to build a stronger shared community on nitrogen research between UK and India.
  • To share initial findings of the VJCs and to stimulate the agenda for cooperation in the next 2-5 years.
  • To share practical lessons learned as a basis to improve the VJC model.
  • To develop the long-term vision for nitrogen research and its policy application in India. An outcome will be a vision statement that can contribute to build the next phase of India-UK cooperation on nitrogen.
  • To provide a mechanism by which India-UK science cooperation can feed into the developing science synthesis of the Indian and South Asian Nitrogen Assessment processes.
  • To produce an outcome paper that summarizes the vision and priorities for future work on agricultural nitrogen for India.
