DFG India Office is pleased to announce that world-renowned scientist, Leibniz award holder and Max Planck Director Prof. Joachim Spatz (Max Planck Institute for Medical Research, Dept. of Cellular Biophysics, Heidelberg) will give a Leibniz Lecture on Mon, 19 November 2018 at 4 pm at the Seminar Hall of IIT Delhi entitled "Sequential Bottom-Up Assembly of Synthetic Cells".

Due to limited seating capacity, everyone interested in attending the lecture is politely requested to write to Charu.Relan@dfg.de or call Ms Relan under 011-4922-4901.

Archives are and have always been eminently important for historical research. They are recognised places for the production of knowledge, but they are also frequently questioned regarding their influence on the historians’ work. In what ways are archives instrumental in shaping the narrative, and can they act as transmitters of „historical truth“?

The Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (MPG) for the Advancement of Science is one of Germany's largest, independent, not-for-profit research organisations. In our 82 research institutes, more than 5.500 scientists conduct research of the highest caliber in the areas of natural sciences, bio-sciences, mathematics, astronomy, social sciences, and the humanities. Max Planck scientists carry out cutting-edge research at the frontiers of traditional and emerging research fields and claim no fewer than seventeen Nobel Prize Laureates among their ranks.

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) is the self-governing body of the research community in Germany. As such, it is also a research funding agency - in fact, it is Europe's largest funding agency for fundamental research. DFG serves all branches of science and the humanities and operates in a bottom-up manner: in almost all of its funding lines, there are no deadlines and no thematic priorities. DFG promotes excellence by selecting the best research projects on a competitive basis. DFG actively encourages international research cooperation, promotes young researchers and fosters gender equality in science and academia. In these and other matters, DFG also advises legislatures and government agencies.
