OIHRN-OICSD-TGI joint event focusing on Environment, Health and India

Date/time: 
28/10/2016 - 14:30
Event location: 

 Margaret Thatcher Centre, Somerville College, Woodstock Road, OX2 6HD

At this meeting, we plan to bring together researchers interested in exploring potential collaborative, interdisciplinary research opportunities integrating Environment, Health and India. This meeting will enable discussions about participants’ current research and potential opportunities for collectively addressing the intersection of their research areas with health (India focused). At the end of the meeting, we hope to have facilitated the formation of multi-disciplinary team/s of researchers who might further the discussions, leading to potential collaborative funding applications. 

In the backdrop of India ratifying the Paris Agreement on climate change, and the prominence with which the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were discussed during the recent UN General Assembly in New York, we feel that it is timely for us to facilitate this meeting along with the OICSD. We look forward to bringing together those with interests in health, environment, gender issues, food and nutrition, air and water quality, climate change etc., to name a few.

If you are interested in attending this meeting, we ask that in addition to confirming your attendance, you send us three key words, identifying your specific areas of interest.

Following this meeting, you are invited to join us for a welcome and networking reception (6:00-8:00 PM) that we are hosting for new and existing students, and researchers at Oxford. The venue for this latter event is the Brittain-Williams Room, Somerville College. We plan to provide an opportunity for India focussed researchers and students to highlight their research, interact, network and establish contacts in an informal setting.

Please let us know of your interest in joining us for the meeting and/or the welcome event, by emailing premjith.cheruvath@georgeinstitute.ox.ac.uk  by Monday, the 17th October, 2016.
