Other talks will be given by the vice president of the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG), Professor Dr. Dorothea Wagner; the vice president of Freie Universität Berlin, Professor Dr. Brigitta Schütt; and other scholars from India and Germany.
Last year Freie Universität’s Liaison Office in New Delhi started holding annual alumni meetings with a thematic focus for former students and researchers. Many Indian alumni have influential positions in academia, business, and politics. It is thought that they can play a role in expanding Freie Universität’s international networks. By holding the alumni meetings, Freie Universität aims to maintain contact with its alumni, facilitate the exchange of information, and create new opportunities for its students.
