UCC Director India
Minashi works closely with Dr Christopher Shepard (International Officer UCC and Vice-Chair, UCC India Strategy Group), staff of the International Office, and the UCC India Strategy Group, to develop and implement a strategy for engagement with India. This is based on building relationships with first-tier universities and research institutes, enterprises and NGOs focused on joint research and development and on staff and student movement in both directions. As a consequence of this strategy an increasing number of UCC researchers and students are engaging in joint projects with their Indian counterparts, while UCC has become an increasingly attractive location for Indian researcher engagement and Indian student enrollment especially at masters and PhD. levels.
