The UK-India Workshop on Civil Nuclear R&D Collaboration is being hosted by the Energy and Physical Sciences Research Council [EPSRC], with assistance from officials within the FCO, on 22 to 24 March 2010. Whitehall officials from FCO, MOD, DIS, DfID, DECC and BIS have been invited as well as senior figures from India's Department of Atomic Energy [DAE] and Indian industry representatives.

The workshop is being held at the Cumberland Hotel, London. Stephen Elsby, senior sector manager for power at EPSRC, is leading the event.

As this workshop has not been arranged by DECC I am unable to provide details of exact costs incurred or Indian officials attending.
