3. Call for Proposal / Application (2012) :
Max Planck Society, Germany – DST, India Program
Pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in October 2004 between Max Planck Society (MPG), Germany and Department of Science & Technology (DST), India, applications/proposals are invited for
(i) Max Planck Partner Group (PG) at Indian Partner Institutions (IPI) (ii) Max Planck - DST Visiting Fellowship
The program will be administered and implemented in India by the Indo-German Science & Technology Centre (IGSTC) on behalf of the Department of Science & Technology (DST).
Partner Group - Eligibility and Funding
Max Planck Partner Groups can be established at an Indian Partner Institute (IPI) when a young scientist (Post-doc/young faculty, max. age 38 years as on 1st January 2013) of proven excellence - after a minimum stay of 12 months at an MPI - returns to a high-performance and appropriately equipped laboratory at an IPI and continues to work on a topic that also enjoys priority at the previous host institute (i.e. MPI). Partner Groups therefore, enable both the MPI and the Head of the Partner Group based at an IPI to continue a sustained scientific interaction.
MPG will allocate up to 20,000 euro p.a. for up to 5 years (initially for 3 years duration) for Partner
Groups established at IPI. The Indian side shall provide funding (max. rupee equivalent of 20,000 euro p.a.) for matching the research activities.
