Exploring Indo-Danish cooperation
Exploring Indo-Danish co-operation in culture, education and science
The Danish Cultural Institute is organising a conference about possible collaborations between Denmark and India in relation to culture, education and science.
The conference will take place on the 24th of February 2015. The entire program for ‘Exploring Indo-Danish Cooperation’ will run from the 22nd-25th of February. The objective is to strengthen collaborations, build new partnerships and, thus, set up the scene for further co-creation.
The new co-operations are fostered in the fields of arts, heritage and culture, education and science, as well as the themes of sustainable development, innovation and co-creation.
This will be done by bringing key personalities and institutions from India to Denmark, in order to foster mutual learning between Indian and Danish personalities and institutions.
Furthermore, it will be done by identifying priorities and prospective collaborative projects as well as ways they can be facilitated by the Danish Cultural Institute and other partners.
The program will consist of three parts. They include an individual visiting program, closed meetings where groups of Indians and Danish counterparts explore topics of common interest and a seminar on topics of common interest in culture and higher education and science.
It will function as a follow-up to the 2012 project ‘India Today Copenhagen Tomorrow’ which – through various programs in visual and performing arts, literature, design, fashion, education, science and business – presented contemporary India to Denmark in 2012.
Among the many Indian personalities, who are scheduled to appear, are Mr Shiban Kishen Koul, Deputy Director at IIT Delhi, and Mr Ram Babu Singh, Head of Geography Department at the University of Delhi.
The engaged partners include the Danish Innovation Centre in India, the Holck-Larsen Foundation, the University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen Business School, Roskilde University, Technical University of Denmark, M-Foundation, Danish Architecture Centre, the Indian Embassy in Denmark and ASIA HOUSE etc.
