A fruitful delegation

Professor Singh’s visit was a direct outcome of the University of Glasgow’s visit to India last month; the largest-ever delegation of University academics to go to India. The group was led by Principal and Vice-Chancellor Professor Anton Muscatelli, and represented areas as diverse as Life Sciences, Innovation & Technology, Engineering, Physics, Business, Economics, Education and Law.

The delegation visited nine institutions across the cities of Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata, meeting with potential academic and business partners across the country, as well as prospective students and a number of the University’s alumni from India.
