Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras by collaborating with University Of Southampton and British Council is organizing the second edition of UK India Social Innovation Challenge 2018. This challenge is being organized to find, fund and support innovative and sustainable solutions that provide efficient ways to manage waste.

I'm delighted to see CSIE enter into this partnership. I'm sure some viable solutions will be forthcoming.
