Our partners

Part of our mission is to build partnerships and collaborations with government, business and individuals in India, the UK and elsewhere.

We have already established a number of such partnerships with government ministries, private enterprises and individual supporters. These partnerships are on course to yield tangible outcomes in academic scholarship and research, as well as ub teaching, policy interventions and wider public debate concerning India and its global context. 

The Avantha Group

As one of India's leading global business organisations, the Avantha Group is committed to developing good citizenship and has a strong record of supporting social issues.

Via the Avantha Group, we work with Thapar University – one of the pioneering technology institutes in India. The university offers opportunities to poor and academically disadvantaged children to excel.


Charles Wallace India Trust

The Charles Wallace India Trust gives grants to Indian citizens resident in India who are in the early or middle stages of their careers and are working or studying in the arts, heritage conservation or the humanities.

The grants enable successful applicants to achieve their artistic, academic or professional ambitions through spending time in the United Kingdom.

We host a Charles Wallace India Trust fellow for one term every two years.

Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR)

TheIndian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) was established in 1950 to foster mutual understanding between India and other countries. As part of this commitment, we signed an agreement to sponsor an annual ICCR Visiting Professorship to be held at the India Institute.

This agreement strengthens our commitment to pursue continuous exchanges of ideas and to generate debates with our colleagues based in India.

Holders of the ICCR Chair help to develop research and teaching at King's and at their own home institutions.
