India and United States have had a long ongoing relation on matters of scientific and technical cooperation. This is not surprising given the high degree of association between Indian and US scientific and technical professionals at the academic level. The resulting interactions have led to a number of official bilateral country-to-country initiatives in joint research at academic institutions in both countries. The highly visible and successful Indo-US Joint Science and Technology Initiative (STI) was one such programme. At times there have been a few problems even in academic and research cooperation, especially when matters of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) began to assume importance in the US agenda. Nevertheless, scientific cooperation at academic level has continued without any major differences between the two countries.
