German give help to set up new IIT research centre in India
German language is the third language which is remove from the Kendriya Vidyalaya schools, for this reasons might have caused some setback to India-German collaboration at the school level, but in higher education it seems it is business as usual.
The German government has agreed to approve the setting up of a Centre for Advanced Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences (CASHSS) in India. Of the two proposals received from Heidelberg University in collaboration with Jawaharlal Nehru University and the second one from Max Weber Foundation in collaboration with Institute of Economic Growth, Centre for the Study of Developing Societies and Centre for the Studies of Social Sciences, Kolkata, the latter has found favour with the German government.
On Tuesday meeting of India and German joint working group on education, it was decided that Germany will help in setting up of one of the new IITs proposed by the NDA government. IT-Madras and Mandi were established with German collaboration. Germany will also help to Indian Institutes of Science Education & Research (IISER), which are devoted exclusively to pure science and high-end research.
Germn was also agreed that University Grants Commission and German Academic Exchange Service will sign a memorandum of understanding early next year for a more comprehensive collaboration in higher education. The Indian side sought German help in vocationalisation of higher education.
CASHSS setting up in India  is seen as recognition of the giant strides India has made in social science research. India is one of the four places where German government will establish CASHSS.
