New INDIGO Partnership Programme

The New INDIGO funding Programme officially referred to as the New INDIGO Partnership Programme supports Indian-European multilateral research and networking projects.

Since its start, New INDIGO has planned and implemented four multilateral calls to enable scientific and innovative cooperation of excellent researchers from Europe and India. These Networking Pilot Programme (NPP) initiatives currently involve STI stakeholders in more than ten EU Member States and Associated Countries of the EU as well as the Indian DBT (Department for Biotechnology) and DST (Department for Science and Technology). The fourth call with DST in Energy Research has just been launched and is open for proposals until the 23rd of August 2013. More information can be found under the "Open Calls" section. By bringing together Indian and European researchers and innovation actors to jointly work on topics of mutual interest, NPP is paving the way to high quality collaborative research. 

Involving more then 60 scientists from over ten countries, thirteen scientific projects in the field of Biotechnology and Health were funded under the first NPP call, 9 projects in the second and 6 projects in the third call.  You may follow their traces by reading through the New Indigo Cooperation Stories. The projects under the first call had opportunity to meet with each other and present their results during the EU-India STI Days that were held Vienna in December 2011, those from the second call met and presented their finding during the EU-India STI Cooperation Days last year in Hyderabad and this year both the projects from the first and third calls dealing with Biotechnology related to Health will meet and present their experiences and findings in the EU-India STI Days on the 10th and 11th of October this year in Paris. More Information on this event will be available on this website, soon!
