Germany second major science research partner of India: StudyNovember 4th, 2011 - 8:25 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Nov 4 (IANS) After the US, Germany is the second most productive partner in collaborative research with India in Science and Technology research, a report released Friday said.
‘Analysis of India’s S&T; Research Capabilities and International Collaborative Strength, particularly in the context of Indo-German Collaboration’ was released by the German Research Foundation (DFG) at the German embassy here.
“As many as 12.9 percent of all the Indian publications in international collaborations have been shared with authors from Germany,” said the study.
According to DFG President Matthias Kleiner, the report reflects upon the very intense scientific contacts between both countries that the Foundation has noted over the last couple of years.
“We expect higher publication performances in the years to come, thanks to more systematic cooperation in programmes through international research training groups or priority programmes,” he added.
As part of the ongoing ‘Germany and India 2011-2012: Infinite Opportunities’ festival, Germany will showcase how its renowned science and technology ecosystem can help create sustainable solutions for India’s rapid urbanisation.
Organised under the aegis of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), in cooperation with Indian partner institutions, numerous symposiums, workshops, expositions and demonstration projects will be exhibited throughout India.
“Also on display will be cutting-edge research and technology in the fields of clean air and water, efficient city mobility, cost effective and durable construction materials, reliable energy supplies and innovative city planning,” said Kleiner.
The Indo-German overall scientific collaboration during 2004-2009 has grown at a remarkable annual average growth rate of 6.8 percent, the report said.
