The 2013 Workshop on Neurobionics in clinical neurology is jointly conducted by University of Göttingen, Forschungszentrum Jülich, and RWTH Aachen, Germany along with Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research (JIPMER), one of the top five medical schools in India. The workshop will be held at JIPMER in Pondicherry, a union territory town in southern India on the shores of the Bay of Bengal.


The goal is to promote interaction between senior and junior researchers from India and Germany, to educate new members of the neurobionics community in India, to introduce new enabling fields and applications to the community, to promote on-going collaborative activities emerging from the Workshop, and to promote a self-sustaining neurobionics research field in India.

Summary of the activities

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 to Thursday, November 29, 2012

The first Indo-German Symposium on Systems Biology 2012 brings together a critical number of researchers from all over India and Germany to discuss their current research in order to enhance cooperation in research and teaching in areas such as Synthetic Biology, Infection Biology, Cancer Biology, Signal Transduction, Microarray, Drug design, and Metabolic Pathway Modeling.The symposium serves as platform for researchers with diverse disciplinary backgrounds - applied mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, and biology among others – to enable the exchange ideas and promote collaboration.

Our Work

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation sponsors top-flight foreign scientists and scholars who come to Germany on research fellowships and research awards to spend longer periods of time working with German colleagues.

Humboldt Research Fellowships and Humboldt Research Awards are highly respected all over the world. It is something special to be a Humboldtian. That is why the Alexander von Foundation supports each and every Humboldtian individually and flexibly – to ensure that the fellows and their families feel at home in Germany and are able to concentrate on their work.

Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. We are creative. We shape technology. We design products. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas. In short, we forge the future.

With its approximately 28400 students and 4000 doctoral students, Freie Universität Berlin is one of the largest and  most renowned research universities in Germany. In 2007, the university became one of Germany’s nine excellence universities by successfully reaching all funding criteria for the German Excellence Initiative, the major national research funding competition. Scholars and scientists teach and conduct research at Freie Universität Berlin‘s eleven departments, covering a nationally unique range of humanities and social science fields, as well as natural and life sciences. In addition, the university hosts three interdisciplinary institutes with a focus on regional studies, and co-hosts the Berlin Medical School, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, in collaboration with Humboldt-Universität Berlin.

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.
