Senator Kim Carr, Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, said recent bilateral talks and commitments had strengthened Australia's science and technology relationship with India.

Senator Carr met the Indian Minister for Science and Technology and Earth Sciences, Mr Kapil Sibal in Melbourne to discuss the bilateral relations between the two countries.

These include forthcoming jointly funded workshops, the Australia-India Strategic Research Fund and a renewed commitment to further strengthen the two countries' ties through working closely to identify and develop additional large-scale collaborative opportunities.

“Australia and India share many common areas of research interest and there are many exciting and world leading projects currently taking place between the two countries that will provide benefits to both our nations,” Senator Carr said.

“As part of our commitment to mutually beneficial research the Australian Government will support two collaborative workshops in emerging fields of biotechnology where we have complementary strengths.”

These include a joint workshop next month sharing developments in the research fields of nutraceuticals and functional foods and another workshop on commercialised transgenic crops as well as those under development.

"The Australian Government remains committed to the relationship with India, particularly through our largest bilateral research arrangement - the Australia-India Stategic Research Fund.”
