New Delhi from Jama Masjid's tower

An India Cambridge 'summit' will take place on Monday 10 September at the Taj Mahal Hotel, New Delhi, to coincide with the Vice-Chancellor's visit to India.

The theme of the meeting will be 'India in the Global Age' and it will focus on issues of knowledge creation and transfer, bringing together Cambridge and Indian expertise in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

Apart from members of the University and Cambridge alumni from the UK and India, major figures from the world of Indian politics, business, media and education will be participating in a day-long series of discussions which are aimed at strengthening Cambridge's long-standing ties with India and developing them for the twenty-first century as the country's global importance grows ever greater.

Panels will consider the future of the university, India's response to the contemporary global economic crisis, Delhi's century as India's capital city, social policy and development, art and cultural politics and ideas of Indian democracy. The summit promises to be one of the most important events ever staged by the University to promote cooperation and understanding outside the UK.
