Growth Analysis report on Energy Research & Development in India
In 2005 Sweden and India signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on Science & Technology for which the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems, VINNOVA, was assigned the operational responsibility on the Swedish side. VINNOVA has asked the Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten) to engage in supporting Swedish-Indian research collaboration under this agreement. At the same time, the Swedish Energy Agency is responsible for bilateral collaborations within the area of energy, including research collaborations, with India according to an MoU on Renewable Energy from 2010 that refers to the 2005 S&T MoU.
In order to prepare for this engagement the Swedish Energy Agency has commissioned the Swedish Agency for Growth Policy Analysis (Growth Analysis) to map out areas where India has a strong position in energy research. The mapping should cover subject areas, geographical areas and universities/institutes as well as other relevant players. This report has been prepared and written by Rajeev Palakshappa under the auspices of Andreas Muranyi Scheutz who is head of Growth Analysis New Delhi office, and was published in September 2011.
