Nquiringminds will be attending the India-UK Tech Summit 2016, India’s largest knowledge and technology conference and exhibition, will be held in New Delhi from 7 to 9 November 2016.
The UK is this year’s partner country for the event, supported by the Government of India and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), which provides a platform for promoting technology-intensive trade and investments between the two countries.
The TECH Summit will bring together leaders in government, industry and research from both countries to broker new partnerships.
The summit will take place over three days, comprising separate thematic summits on:
- technology, innovation and entrepreneurship
- British expertise in higher education
- design and intellectual property.
The TECH Summit will demonstrate the depth of India-UK partnerships in business, innovation, research, education and entrepreneurship, with the biggest showcase of British expertise and commitment to strengthening relationships in every sphere.
It will also host a major delegation from the UK, highlighting the UK’s capabilities across important sectors like smart cities, healthcare, advanced manufacturing, agri-tech, education and skills.
The summit will host a major exhibition of UK-India technological collaboration and excitingly, a Hackathon organised by Barclays Rise, where young Indian students, entrepreneurs and tech-professionals will participate in a competition to find a solution to a specially-posed technical problem.
Three other major annual events will take place that week, namely Prabodhan, the UK-India CEO Forum and Joint Economic and Trade Committee (JETCO), providing an unprecedented platform for Indian and British leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs to take the bilateral partnership to the next level.
