Both India and Germany have expressed satisfaction with the ongoing Science & Technology Cooperation between the two countries which is one of the strategic pillars of our bilateral relationship. Academia, research institutions and industries of both countries have strong bonding and are playing the role of catalysts in our strategic research and development partnerships.

On the third day of his official engagement in Berlin, Dr Jitendra Singh mentioned that both the countries are now working in frontier areas of science and technology, including electric mobility, cyber-physical system, quantum technologies, future manufacturing, green hydrogen fuel, deep ocean research and proposed to develop cooperation in these areas. Two countries have already started mapping each other’s strengths in areas like the application of Artificial Intelligence in Sustainability and Healthcare.

Both the Ministers expressed satisfaction on the recently concluded MoU between the Department of Science & Technology, Government of India and German Research Foundation (DFG) to support the International Research Training Groups (IRTG) programme would further boost the cooperation towards capacity building targeting the training of Indian and German students for pursuing the PhD programme.
