German government to set up IIT and research centre in India

The German government has decided to help to set up Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and Centre for Advanced Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences (CASHSS) in India.

Earlier, HRD Ministry had directed Kendriya Vidyalaya to remove the German language from schools, which led the setback of relationship between India and Germany.

India had already received proposals from Heidelberg University in collaboration with Jawaharlal Nehru University and Max Weber Foundation in collaboration with Institute of Economic Growth, Centre for Study of Developing Societies and Centre for the Studies of Social Sciences, Kolkata.

In a recent meeting held between India and Germany, it was decided that Germany will help in setting up of IIT and research centre.

German government had already helped in setting up of IIT Madras and IIT Mandi.

India also wants Germany to help Indian Institutes of Science Education & Research (IISER), which are devoted exclusively to pure science and high-end research. IISERs are less than a decade old and government is keen to enhance their branding.

In 2015, University Grants Commission (UGC) and German Academic Exchange Service will sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU).

India is one of the four places where German government will establish CASHSS. Germany wants one school each in south and south-east Asia, Latin America, Africa and middle-east. University of Singapore has also shown interest in having CASHSS.
