The liaison office in New Delhi maintains partnerships with selected universities in India. It recruits Indian graduate students interested in working on a doctorate in Germany, and it supports members of Freie Universität in planning and implementing conferences and other events on the subcontinent.
The main areas of cooperation with the University of Delhi and the Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi are in the humanities, political science, and cultural studies. With the University of Delhi there is also a joint project in chemistry, which has been going on for more than eight years. An international research training group, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) was set up in collaboration with the University of Hyderabad to study Functional Molecular Infection Epidemiology. The group investigates, for example, factors responsible for the occurrence and spread of infectious diseases such as malaria.
In August 2012 an agreement was reached with Pondicherry University that Freie Universität would provide support in developing a graduate program in European Studies and in providing German instruction for students. There are also collaboration projects with other research institutes, in particular with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Roorkee, but also with the IITs in Delhi, Chennai, and Bombay, as well as with the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) in Bangalore, all related to current research in computer science.
The first official meeting of Freie Universität alumni in India took place in New Delhi in November 2011 with 40 persons attending. A second meeting followed in October 2012, which was part of the activities associated with the official opening of the German House for Research and Innovation in New Delhi. Annual meetings are now being planned in various Indian cities. The meetings will focus on specific topics from fields where there are existing research collaborations between Freie Universität and Indian partners.
The international network of Freie Universität comprises seven liaison offices that support the university’s researchers by providing access to regional expertise and local contacts. The focus of the offices varies according to location.
