The team is currently preparing for the forthcoming Ministerial Indo-UK Science & Innovation Council, to be held in New Delhi in November. This is the major set-piece event where the priorities and mechanisms for UK-India research and innovation cooperation are agreed every two years. This time, we’re hoping to agree the final shape of the Newton-Bhabha programme, and therefore what funding should soon be available to support more joint research. So watch this space to hear what has been agreed and what new opportunities are coming!

Spotlight on… Renewable Energy  spotlight

Renewable energy has been a long term focus of our work developing collaborations between the UK and India – with projects and events across a range of technologies. Just this week, we’ve had a delegation of UK experts on wave and tidal energy visiting India. This follows a similar delegation earlier in the year on offshore wind, and a joint workshop in South Africa on biofuels. Renewable energies have also been the subject for significant joint research funding, including two of the Industrial R&D grants awarded recently. For a full picture of the funded projects, please see RCUK’s summary. And, with the food-water-energy nexus identified as a priority for the Newton Bhabha programme, that support is likely to continue. Let us know if you have ideas for future events that we could help with!

Dear partners and friends of Cologne,In order to make Cologne even better known as a travel destination, we have launched a broad range of activities. One project is the presentation of Cologne’s wonderful range of cultural attractions in the Yearbook of Cultural Brands. This is an outstanding platform for coming into contact with potential sponsorship partners. To advertise our marketing focus for 2014/2015 we produced a video clip on the theme of “Holy Cologne”, one of further videos on central touristic topics of Cologne.

Kind regards
Josef Sommer

The “cultural brand” quality seal

The Cologne Tourist Board has cooperated with the Cultural Department of the city of Cologne to place an advertorial in the Yearbook of Cultural Brands 2014/2015. The yearbook serves as an expert reference work for interested companies who would like to make a name for themselves by sponsoring a cultural event or institution. Through this cooperation Cologne has received the right for one year to call itself a “cultural brand”.»

Cologne Tourist Board trains new city guides

The Cologne Tourist Board provides more than 7,500 city tours for visitors every year. It offers tours based on over 100 different themes in 15 languages for groups. In order to further expand this core area of its expertise, the Cologne Tourist Board will be training new city guides starting in January 2015.»

15th Museum Night in Cologne

On Museum Night in Cologne, which will take place on 8 November 2014, a total of 46 museums and art venues will open their doors from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. This will be the 15th time that art connoisseurs will be able to enjoy the works of world-class artists, newcomers and Old Masters and discover the glamour of renowned museums as well as new exhibition venues, all in one night.»

“Holy Cologne” in a video clip

An initial impression of the wealth of religious and cultural highlights that are connected with the theme of “Holy Cologne” is provided by a video clip produced by the Cologne Tourist Board to advertise its marketing focus for 2014/2015. It will be followed by further videos focusing on central themes related to Cologne.»

Luis Miranda takes over as Chairman of the Board at Centre for Civil Society


Former Private Equity leader Luis Miranda takes over as Chairman of the Board at Centre for Civil Society

New Delhi-based Centre for Civil Society (CCS) has named Luis Miranda, former Chairman of IDFC Private Equity as the Chairman of its Board of Trustees. Luis takes over from Ashish Dhawan, Founder and CEO of Central Square Foundation (CSF) who formerly ran private equity fund, ChrysCapital.

Luis founded IDFC Private Equity in 2002 and served as the Chief Executive Officer and President at the firm until 2010. He was earlier a senior member of the start-up team at HDFC Bank. He is Senior Advisor, Morgan Stanley Infrastructure and is involved with various non-profits related to human rights, education and health care. Luis got his MBA from Chicago Booth, where he was influenced by Chicago School economists George Stigler, Gary Becker and Gene Fama.

Talking about the strategic role of think-tanks like Centre for Civil Society, Luis said “India still ranks abysmally low on a number of world rankings on important indicators like ease of doing business, economic freedom, competitiveness and innovation; in fact, it’s ranking has declined over the last few years. Modi’s recently launched ‘Make in India’ campaign, Jan Dhan Yojana for financial inclusion of hitherto unbanked Indians and the abolition of Planning Commission are welcome steps towards ensuring ‘maximum governance, minimum government’. However, this ecosystem needs to be complemented by organisations like Centre for Civil Society, which could potentially offer interventions to change systems in India and work on public policy solutions to make the country more market-oriented.”

In his new role as Chairman of Board of Trustees of CCS, Luis will provide strategic direction and energize CCS’ initiatives in education, livelihood and policy training as the organisation works toward promoting choice and accountability across private and public sectors.

On his appointment, Luis said “CCS has always stood for the basic right to freedom and choice. What is unique about CCS, is that we continue to relentlessly raise these ideas to ensure that they do not get lost in public policy discourses where individual rights are trampled upon, where markets are undermined and big government leads to inefficient allocation of resources. We remain focused on engaging more meaningfully with policy and opinion leaders to bring about social change through sound public policies.”
