In January 2023, the Natural Environment Research Council and India’s Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) held a joint UK-India scoping workshop facilitated by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) India on ‘De-risking the Risk of Solid Earth Hazards’. This brought together scientific experts from the UK and India to identify opportunities for a potential joint UKRI-MoES bilateral programme on the topic.
Over the course of two days, participants discussed the current research landscape, strengths and expertise present within India and the UK, and opportunities for bilateral research. The format of the workshop was built around five interactive breakout sessions.
The key outcome of the workshop was the identification of the highest priority research areas. The key discussions, as well as the ideas and priorities identified at the workshop, are summarised in this report.
