Europe meets India
From 1 – 8 July: It’s Euro-Indian Week at the University of Wuerzburg.
Organised by the Alumni Team, this week was dedicated to a range of topics including the historical, scientific and economical relationship between these two global regions. 19 european and indian alumni from the University of Wuerzburg, currently living in their homelands, returned to Wuerzburg to take part in this intercultural exchange.
India considers the European Union (EU) to be its most important trade partner. From the EU’s perspective, increasing ties with India, an aspiring economic power, is very important – and not just for reasons of trade. In a similar fashion to the EU, India is pursuing ambitious targets for its future. The educational budget, for example, is to be increased five-fold by 2012 – something that will affect the further development of its universities. This, in turn, opens up new possibilities for future collaborations with European universities and schools.
The programme schedule below describes the following photos chronologically.
We would like to say thank you very much to all lecturers and kind helpers!
