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.

RWTH Aachen University is a place where the future of our industrialised world is thought out. The University is proving to be a hotspot with increasing international recognition where innovative answers to global challenges are developed.

Use-inspired Basic Research

The University of Cologne is one of the largest and oldest universities in Germany. True to its motto ‘good ideas since 1388’, the University continues to successfully combine novelty with tradition in its research and teaching and has produced a number of famous academics over the decades including Kurt Alder (chemist) and Konrad Adenauer (former German chancellor).

The University of Cologne is located in the Rhineland – a mega-urban region in the heart of Europe. This region has excellent working and living conditions and is one of Europe’s most developed research and economic areas, making it highly attractive for students and researchers alike.

Founded in 1386, Heidelberg University is Germany’s oldest university, and one of the top research universities in Europe. Its success in international rankings documents its leading position in the scientific landscape.

Heidelberg University is a comprehensive university, offering the full spectrum of disciplines in the humanities, law and the social sciences alongside the natural and life sciences, including medicine. Among the university’s most prominent research areas are transcultural studies, molecular life sciences, medicine, physics, astronomy, chemistry, mathematics and scientific computing. As a comprehensive university, Heidelberg is deeply committed to strengthening its disciplines and to fostering interdisciplinary cooperation, as well as to carrying research results over into society and industry.

For over 60 years, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has been working jointly with partners in India for sustainable economic, ecological, and social development. Currently, GIZ has over 340 employees in India, of whom 70 per cent are national personnel.

India is fast emerging as an economic and industrial power. It is a member of the ‘Group of Twenty’ (G20) as well as one of the five major emerging national economies, namely Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS). Despite the country’s rapidly growing economy, poverty and other socio-economic issues remain a challenge. The burgeoning population and accelerated urbanisation in the country have resulted in an environment at risk and greenhouse gas emissions that continue to spiral upwards.

The focal areas of Indo-German cooperation currently are:
