India: A New Knowledge Hot Spot

Abstract:
India, once the slumbering elephant of Asia, has woken up and is fast becoming a place where people from around the world go to do scientific research. That's likely to mean more research opportunities in India both for Indians and for foreign scientists.

Right now, India's research mix has elements of the local and global; the hottest topics for research are agriculture and biotechnology (to increase food productivity), conventional (non-nuclear) energy, nanotechnology, theoretical physics, statistics, mathematics, and--obviously--information technology. Research in space, atomic energy, and defense systems is also carried out at Indian institutions but is usually out of bounds for researchers from oversees.
