With its strategy towards the internationalisation of science and research, the German federal government is giving financial support to bilateral collaboration with India in the fields of science and engineering. The programme's objective is to stimulate new cooperations, for example by facilitating the initiation and preparation of joint projects. These projects can lie in areas such as the material sciences, environmental or energy research, production technology, or the life sciences. Companies or institutions that could come into question for such funding can find detailed information at http://www.bmbf.de/foerderungen/15091.php.
