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:

He has contributed immensely to the field of Pedagogy which deals in holistic science of education.

He had recently made a trip to the All India Institute of  Medical Sciences (New Delhi) on the 23rd and 24th of November 2017.

In the highly competitive world of research, it is often difficult for young researchers to compete with the researchers with proven research track records and established research contacts for common funding modules. Hence, the importance of opportunities for “Early-Stage researchers” and “Early Career Researchers” has increased manifold in order to keep the interest of young researchers in science.

 

International research team has, for the first time, detected traces of Freon-40 in a young stellar system and comets with Cologne participation / publication in "Nature Astronomy"

 

A research team with scientists from among others from Cambridge / Massachusetts, Copenhagen and Cologne has for the first time demonstrated a significant concentration of Freon-40 in a young star system about 400 years ago. The high-resolution images of the ALMA radiotelescopes in the Chilean Atacama desert as well as data from the ROSINA mass spectrometer from the Rosetta space mission served as a data basis.

 

The € 25,000 prize for university communication 2017 goes to the University of Cologne. 
This year, the prize was issued on the subject of "Knowledge for the Society: Presenting Higher Education Research". Universities pursue research on diverse, socially discussed topics. This is connected with the task of communicating with the various concerned and interested groups, feeding the results into the ongoing discussions by suitable means, and enabling people to participate in the social discourse in a qualified way. Faced with an increasing shift away from differentiated, fact-based disputes, the universities face growing challenges.
