Think nationally to boost research, says Max Planck head

The German House for Research and Innovation - DWIH New Delhi visited the Bosch Centre of Excellence in Automation Technologies at Dharamsinh Desai University (DDU), Nadiad in October 2015. The delegation included 4 DWIH New Delhi members namely Heidelberg Center South Asia (HCSA), University of Göttingen, Max Planck Society (MPG) and German Research Foundation (DFG). The objective was to understand the institute-industry partnership and visit the laboratories set up by Bosch in collaboration with DDU to train young engineers on high-tech equipment used in the industries.

The German House for Research and Innovation - DWIH New Delhi in collaboration with National Institute of Design, NID organized the DWIH Indo-German Art Connect from 10th to 18th October 2015 at National Institute of Design (NID) Gandhinagar from 11 am to 8 pm. The 9-days long exhibition showcased selected works from Photography Masterclasses “The Theatre of Real Life”, conducted by acclaimed German photographer Wolfgang Zurborn at NID Gandhinagar (Nov 2013) and Kolkata (Feb 2014). The event reflected international cooperation between India and Germany through the photographs displayed.

The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Astronomy & Astrophysics is a joint structured doctoral program by the Max Planck Institute for Radioastronomy (MPIfR, Bonn) and the Universities of Bonn and Cologne.

Several PhD positions are available at one of the most vibrant Astronomy centers in Europe for talented students who are about to finish their Masters (or equivalent) thesis in Physics or Astrophysics. The instruction language is English.

Program Details:

Call for applications in 2015

The Solar System School invites applications for PhD positions in Solar System Science. Review of applications will begin on 15 November 2015.

The International Max Planck Research School for Solar System Science at the University of Göttingen ("Solar System School") offers a research-oriented doctoral programme covering the physical aspects of Solar system science. It is jointly run by the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) and the University of Göttingen.

Research at the MPS covers three main areas:

  • "Sun and Heliosphere",
  • "Solar and Stellar Interiors",
  • "Planets and Comets".

Solar System School students collaborate with leading scientists in these fields and graduates are awarded a doctoral degree from the renowned University of Göttingen or, if they choose, another university.
