Dear Mr Naresh Sagar,Orange
Welcome to the March Edition of the UK Science and Innovation Network in India’s Newsletter. In this month’s newsletter you can read on how Lifi can make a big change for India. We would also like to highlight the Antimicrobial Resistance workshop on Hospital Design and Infection control being held in Mumbai.
SIN Spotlight
One of the UK’s brightest (quite literally) and revolutionary technological developments isLight Fidelity or LiFi. Invented by Professor Harald Haas, LiFi has the power to change how we access and transmit data in offices and home around the world. You can read more about Sunil Kumar’s (SIN advisor, Bangalore) visit to Prof. Haas’s lab in the University of Edinburgh last year. One of the many highlights was his demo of an LED carrying gigabytes of data and a solar panel which could not only generate power but also receive data.

Ben wrote an excellent blog(originally on the University of Sheffield website) capturing why this sort of visit is so important in furthering UK-India collaborations in the area of high value manufacturing. Read more…
