Dr Torsten Fischer, Director at German Research Foundation (DFG), talks about activities the DWIH Tour will conduct. The Tour aims to educate students about educational opportunities available in Germany The Young Hans Team What activities will the eight-day long DWIH Tour consist of? The DWIH consortium members will offer a colorful mix of different events in intriguing formats to the research community, in particular to young students and future researchers. The tour will have highly engaging scientific lectures, seminars and meetings along with various interesting events like a science slam, science quiz and cultural performances. The activities will highlight German excellence with high relevance to urgent global challenges like climate change, financing the rural sector and many more. The Excellence on Tour will provide a unique opportunity for the young and old, current and future researchers to get an inside view into how fascinating the Indo-German research environment can be. If a student is interested in studying in Germany, will the German House also help further for enrolment in university? The Tour is meant to give information on everything connected to research and academic life, innovation and teaching in Germany. There will be German experts from all domains, including course enrolment in German universities. However, technical assistance might not be possible at the tour venue as we are expecting hundreds of visitors. Interested students and researchers can get in touch with the concerned team after the tour through mail or telephone and all the help needed will be provided. Throw some light on "Indo-German Science Slam" session the tour plans to hold. The Science Slam is the most fantastic way of showcasing the vocation that science and research work can be in life. The idea is to connect the fun and results as part of scientific work. Young researchers will be given the opportunity to present their work briefly in an informal and pleasant way to an audience and a jury that is also allowed to ask questions. The jury will be headed by the Deputy Chief of German mission to India, Cord Meier-Klodt, who, along with the audience will select one winner out of six presentations. There will be one presentation each from medicine/physiology, "green" life sciences, physics/mathematics, geo sciences, chemistry and process engineering/engineering, informatics and social sciences.
