There are upcoming meetings and conferences taking place this week that deal with innovation in India, according to The Economic Times of India. I’ve found that the Times, and much of the English-language press of India, available on the web, is a good source for business, innovation and political news.
One big conference is being held on Friday in Washington, DC, following up on President Bush’s trip to India a few months ago. It’s called ‘India’s Changing Innovation System: Achievements, Challenges and Opportunities for US-India Cooperation,’ according to The Economic Times.
The Economic Times says that “India is being represented by Kapil Sibal, Minister for Science and Technology, Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Deputy Chairman, Planning Commission, R A Mashelkar, Chairman, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, Ronen Sen, Ambassador of India to the United States and Surinder Kapur, Chairman, CII Mission for Innovation in Manufacturing and CMD, Sona Group.
US side is being represented by Samuel Bodman, US Secretary of Energy, John Marburger, Director, White House Office of Science and Technology and Ralph Cicerone, President, National Academy of Sciences among others will address the conference. Over 350 interested scientists, engineers, and businessmen are attending the day-long conference.”
The India Business Forum is also being launched in NYC on June 22, by Kamal Nath, the Minister of Commerce and Industry.
