HAW Fact Finding Mission to India

The DAAD organised a delegation visit of four German Universities or Applied Sciences (HAW) to Bengaluru, Kolkata and New Delhi from 5 to 12 November 2022. The delegation explored and discussed potential cooperation at different levels with focus on practice-oriented education and application-oriented research.

Representatives from the University of Applied Sciences in Erfurt, Münster, Dresden and Berlin and the DAAD New Delhi visited in Bengaluru the RV Engineering College, IIIT Bangalore and PES University. In Kolkata the delegation interacted with faculty, students and staff of Jadhavpur University, IIEST Shibpur and Sister Nivedita University.


The interactions with the faculty and students gave a deeper insight into the education and research system as well as in the innovation activities in higher education institutions in India. Visits to different labs offered a first-hand insight into the current research activities. Furthermore, the students at these colleges and universities also took the opportunity to demonstrate their projects, innovations and start-ups to the members of the delegation.

The highlight in both cities were the match-making sessions wherein the more than 35 representatives from Indian institutions from Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Odisha and West Bengal interacted and discussed various possibilities for a future collaboration with the participating HAWs. The fact-finding mission ended in New Delhi with a networking dinner reception with German organisations, research institutions and universities present in India.


The members of the HAW Fact Finding Mission identified potential partners during the week and carried out discussion on various opportunities for initiating further cooperation with India. Faculty exchange, study tours for students, placement of German students for internships in India and possibility of students exchange were discussed.
