German assistance for new IIT and research centre

Taking away the option of German as the third language from Kendriya Vidyalaya schools might be a reason for a setback to the Indo-German collaboration at a school level, but in higher education, well it looks like business as usual. The German government has reportedly approved the setting up of a new Centre for Advanced Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences (CASHSS) in India.

Out of the two proposals that were received such as Heidelberg University in partnership with Jawaharlal Nehru University and the second one involving Max Weber Foundation in along with Institute of Economic Growth, Centre for the Study of Developing Societies and Centre for the Studies of Social Sciences, Kolkata, the second one seems to have impressed the German government.

Recently as part of meeting of India-German joint working group that was set up on education it was reportedly decided that Germany would be helping in development of the new IITs that were first proposed by the NDA government.

IIT-Madras and Mandi were earlier established along with German collaboration. India is also hoping for Germany to assist Indian Institutes of Science Education & Research (IISER), that are exclusively dedicated to pure science as well as high-end research. IISERs are just a decade old and government wants to ensure their higher branding.

In this regard, sources say that the University Grants Commission and German Academic Exchange Service would ink a memorandum of understanding in 2015 towards a comprehensive collaboration in the field of higher education.
