Germany was one of the focus countries, with a dedicated pavilion (of which DWIH New Delhi was a part) highlighting German trade, research and innovation. The thrust of the DWIH New Delhi's outreach programme at AI India was to promote Germany as a premier destination for research worldwide and to highlight what it offers, including
- an active link between stakeholders in public and private sectors and scientific communities in India and Germany;
- institutional networking within the innovation ecosystem through collaboration opportunities, seminars, and conferences etc.;
- a platform for young talent in innovation and entrepreneurship from India and Germany and
- support for bilateral projects between Germany and India in areas of science, technology, innovation, research, and development.
The event also served as a highly effective opportunity to build new, mutually beneficial connections with people from academia and industry, as well as from independent researchers and young professionals seeking to develop and execute worthwhile projects. The visitors also showed substantial interest in DWIH New Delhi’s upcoming Indo- German Symposium, centered around the "Future of Work".
The Indo German Symposium, a flagship event of DWIH New Delhi, is slated to be held from 19th-20th March 2019. It will bring together eminent Indian and German academicians, scientists, researchers, policymakers and representatives of international organisations to deepen our understanding of the changing world of work and the impact of AI on future workspaces, workforce, work processes and on people.
