New Australia-India PhD program

A new PhD program is furthering opportunities for science and technology innovation for Australia and India.

The University of Western Australia (UWA) and The Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR) will build on their long history of collaboration to deliver their first joint PhD program. 

Focused on science and technology, including agriculture and plant science, the joint program will help facilitate more cooperative research collaborations for years to come. 

AcSIR Director Professor Rajender Singh Sangwan said the collaboration provides a platform for UWA and AcSIR to build on mutual research interests.

“It facilitates opportunities of peer-to-peer learning for doctoral research students,” he said.

“This also lays the foundation of active collaboration among PhD students of AcSIR and UWA – the future scientists and science leaders.”
