Building Capacity to Address Key Challenges

Inspiring and producing rigorous research

Our focus is on four key themes – education, health, infrastructure, and governance and security – which are closely connected to major challenges facing India and Australia

Building long-term capacity in Australia for engagement with India

We are creating new doctoral and post-doctoral positions based at Australian universities, as well as supporting graduate students and early career researchers who work on India in Australia.

Enabling better policy-making in relation to India in Australia

We convene the annual Australia India Leadership Dialogue, roundtables and boardroom briefings, as well as producing regular policy briefings and reports.

Encouraging two-way mobility between Australia and India

We offer a landing pad for Australian faculty, researchers and students in India via the work of our node in Delhi.

Engaging with business and community partners

We celebrate the strength of people-to-people ties between Australia and India and work to develop social and cultural connections
