Hamburg-India Business Day 2021: R&D cooperation for innovation

German-Indian Round Table (GIRT) Hamburg is pleased to announce that it will hold a breakout session on the theme of R&D cooperation for innovation on Monday, Nov. 8, 2021.

The online session will take place via Zoom between 14:15 and 15:15 CET (18:45 – 19:45 IST). Zoom details see below.

India has emerged as a lead market for innovations, especially for frugal innovations that target affordable excellence. Use of digital technologies in a voluminous and unsaturated market offers tremendous opportunities to achieve scale in production and cater to demand in other markets with similar socio-economic needs. With examples from various sectors, such as telemedicine, fintech and industrial goods, this session showcases the opportunities of Indo-German collaboration as well as the implementation strategies to best realize the full potential of this cooperation.

This session is conceived as a precursor to another event on “Potentials of Indo-German Collaboration for High-Tech Innovation” on Nov. 10, 2021.

Time Topic
14:15 – 14:25 Welcome & introduction by Dr. Stephan Buse (Center for Frugal Innovation, TU Hamburg) and Prof. Dr. Rajnish Tiwari (

Come and get inspired!

India and Germany belong to the group of leading innovating nations in selected high-tech sectors. Research conducted by the Institute for Technology and Innovation Management at TUHH shows that the competence profiles of the business and science sectors of both countries have complementarities, which have not been sufficiently utilized so far.

This online event will explore the potentials for Indo-German cooperation through selected successful practical examples, high-calibre expert talks and a panel discussion. Some of the questions it will focus upon are:

  • Why does it make sense for India and Germany to cooperate in the field of high-tech, e.g. hydrogen power?
  • What are the opportunities that German firms see in an innovation partnership with India?
  • Why do Indian companies engage in R&D and innovation in Germany? What are their experiences?

Event title: Potentials of Indo-German Collaboration for High-Tech Innovation

Date & Time: Wed., 10 Nov. 2021, 10:00 – 12:00 h (CET) | 14:30 – 16:30 h (IST)
