The following report is a critical analysis of the level of research collaboration between Australian universities and their Indian counterparts. Based on research conducted by La Trobe University between November 2015 and May 2016, it provides a snapshot of the current research engagement between the two countries. We acknowledge that the picture remains imperfect. However, it does capture a substantial majority of the collaboration and in so doing brings into focus the barriers to international research collaboration, while identifying opportunities to broaden and extend bilateral cooperation.
The report evaluates the data collected to reveal the issues to be addressed in establishing a framework within which international research partnerships between Australia and India can flourish.
