India may have strengths like democracy, diversity, demography, interdependence and role models, but it can’t become a global research giant unless it harnesses the strengths, according to Rajeev Gowda, STEPS Centre partner who organised the first event for our risk, uncertainty and technology project – co-funded by UKIERI in Bangalore last week.

Rajeev was joined at the Indian Insitute of Management Bangalore by the brightest of Bangalore’s innovation talent and James Wilsden and Kirsten Bound from Demos in the UK, who talked about their Atlas of Ideas work.

Rajeev’s refelctions on the event were published in a report in the Deccan Herald (the largest English-language daily in Karnataka) and James blogged about his visit.
