The Section for Science and Technology encourages academic, research or industrial partners based in France and India to set up or develop scientific cooperation. A success story of such a global networking is the Technology Summit, held in October 2013, which catered 300 French and 600 Indian researchers and industry participants at this large-scale event.
On a more specific and individual level, we can help you if you are seeking for research or industrial partners in India or France. Also, if you are planning to organise a conference or a summer school in India, you can contact us for logistical help and advice.
The Science & Technology Service communicates on all the Indo-French calls, funding opportunities and fellowships for research and studies in India and France. As we are not a funding agency, our aim is not to provide a financial assistance but to make scientists benefit from our network and find the appropriate funding. However, occasionally, we can help scientists or PhD students by supporting their travel fare after reviewing their project.
For more information, you can visit our Fellowships and Funding page.
Science, Technology & Innovation watch
From France to India
This watch aims at informing French authorities, researchers, industries and students about latest scientific and technology activities in India. Some of this information is displayed in the Bulletins de veille scientifique et technologique and in Our Reports.
From India to France
We also inform scientific actors in India of the science and technology activities in France, as well as of the cooperation between the two countries and the possibilities for partnerships and exchanges. You will find some of this information on our website and by reading Our Newsletters.
