Only 3.5 percent of the global research output in 2010 was from India. A recent survey by Thomson Reuters highlights that in most disciplines, India’s contribution to the global research output has been below the overall average. The Narotam Sekhsaria Foundation supports educational institutes through a range of fellowship programmes that enables research across subject areas. These fellowship programmes are structured to facilitate professional development of Individual Fellows, provide intensive training for research and exploration as well as significant work experience. They are also designed to support a range of activities including graduate study in a specific field, research to advance work on a particular issue and opportunities to further explore a particular field of work.
