Cambridge University Press India and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore have announced a new collaboration which will publish a series of new academic titles as part of the Cambridge IISc Series.

The Bangalore-Cambridge Innovation Network is working to build closer links between academics, businesses, researchers and entrepreneurs from both cities

The books will be written by eminent academicians, researchers and subject experts in science, technology and engineering. A total of 15 academic titles will be published over a span of three years, all focusing on advanced research in diverse areas of science and technology.

This co-publishing endeavour aims to provide quality content at affordable prices, to help improve the professional education system at postgraduate and undergraduate level.

The books will be aimed at a wide audience including students, researchers, academicians and professionals, and they be published under three categories: research monographs, centenary lectures and lecture notes.

The Indian Institute of Science is a premier research institution known for its cutting-edge research and high quality teaching, which is over 100 years’ old. The IISc has 450 full-time research faculty members on campus as well as 2,500 graduate students.

The Institute’s faculty members are internationally recognized for their work in many areas, including many recipients of the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize (India’s highest award for scientific accomplishments) and Fellows of the Indian Science and Engineering Academies.

The Institute contributes significantly to the scientific and technical literature output from India with nearly 1,100 papers published by its faculty annually in Institute of Science-indexed journals.

The editorial board will consist of the following academic experts from Indian Institute of Science:

 Anurag Kumar: Professor, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering
 GK Ananthasuresh: Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering
 K Kesava Rao: Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering
 Gadadhar Misra: Professor, Department of Mathematics
 TA Abinandanan: Professor, Department of Materials Engineering
 Rahul Pandit: Professor, Centre for Condensed Matter Theory,

As well as this initiative to co-publish books with the IISc, the Bangalore-Cambridge Innovation Network (BCIN), an association of similar-interest groups within academia and industry is also working to build closer links between academics, businesses, researchers and entrepreneurs from both cities. The network was launched by the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, in 2012.
