through Collaboration and Technology) is a project  initiated as a part of the Call for Collaborative Research on the topic "The future of UK-Indian trade and cross border investment in a changing global environment" by UK's ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) and ICSSR ( Indian Council of Social Science Research). The call invites researchers in India and the UK to analyse aspects of the trade relationship between the two countries, and identify the challenges and opportunities in the context of the changing international environment.
