Blackett and Jagdish Chandra Bose Memorial Lectures

The Blackett Memorial Lecture (when held in India) and the Jagdish Chandra Bose Memorial Lecture (when held in the UK) were established by the Indian National Science Academy and the Royal Society in 1975. The Society proposes UK lecturers and the Academy proposes Indian lecturers.
The lecture was named in honour of the physicist Patrick Blackett FRS, who had close associations with India and Jagdish Chandra Bose FRS who studied in the UK.
