The scope and significance of the cooperation between German and Indian researchers has increased substantially in the past years. To keep pace with the growing trend it is necessary to increase the awareness of the research environment in the partner countries. The mutual exchange of information on universities, research institutions and funding opportunities will further intensify Indo-German academic and research cooperation.
The DFG Delhi office, along with its branch in Hyderabad, is striving to achieve this. Apart from coordinating and supporting existing projects, the DFG brings together eminent researchers from both countries with each side complementing the other, thereby creating synergy. The DFG Delhi Office is undertaking these tasks jointly with the existing Indian partner institutions - the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Indian National Science Academy (INSA).
