The German House for Research and Innovation (DWIH) – New Delhi together with Technical University Munich (TUM) and its partner institutes in India will organize an Indo-German Dialogue : Young Innovators in November 2017. In the form of an interactive forum, it will cover the cities of Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai which are some of the important centers of innovation in India.

The forum will be a half a day event. It will feature a group of young researchers, leaders and entrepreneurs from India and Germany who will present their award winning and impactful work to their peers. The topics are slated to be multidisciplinary with a larger technical and social context to it. This event, as its name suggests will provide a platform for both the speakers and the audience, for a dialogue and exchange of ideas.

Young generation of researchers also play an instrumental role in driving research for the development in scientific, commercial as well as in the field of social change. India and Germany, both countries are incubators of innovation and can boast of their dynamic Startup culture-ideas of which are very often generated by young talent. Both the countries have a long standing and fruitful partnership in several sectors- science, technology and research being one of the major ones. There is a continuous rise in work on bilateral projects in these fields and exchange of young researchers as well. In this context the broader idea of the Indo-German Dialogue will also be to connect younger generation of both the countries to initiate opportunities for a possible cooperation. At the same time, it will showcase Germany as a destination for research and innovation, as all the speakers have carried all or a part of their research in Germany.
