Under a programme launched by UGC and The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), project based personnel exchange programme (PPP) would take place from the 2016-17 session. The programme has been initiated keeping in mind the visions of the Indo-German Cultural Exchange Programme. It is directed to make the cooperation between the two countries ever firmer through exchange of scholars that would take part in co-operative research projects primarily in the fields of humanities and social sciences.
The offer would be applicable to the faculty members who had been employed at Indian universities and higher educational institutions approved under the Section 2(f) & 12(b) of UGC Act. The programme is scheduled to begin from January 1, 2016. The details regarding the offer and the exchange programme could be found in the official website. The other vital information regarding eligibility conditions and funding would be available in the website as well. For any other information and required documents to apply for the programme the candidates can visit the website- www.ugc.ac.in.
The programme highly supports the research collaborations and has the intention of initiating extensive projects such as the preparation of joint applications which would be meant for submissions to any other funding organizations. This programme is expected to provide a platform for students and researchers of both the countries to know more about each other’s experience and academic excellence.
