…..

Britain Nepal Academic Council (BNAC) and Martin Chautari have started a collaborative initiative to organise a new lecture series themed as the Martin Chautari – BNAC Lecture Series.

The idea is to promote knowledge exchange between the two organisations, by offering BNAC members and other UK-based academics and researchers a platform for sharing their research in Kathmandu. Martin Chautari will host the lecture in Kathmandu on a mutually agreed date and time.

The lecture will be organised on an occasional basis, as and when a speaker is available. Nepal-based speakers also could give a lecture under this series.
