Tilmann Leisegang participated in INDOGFOE 2021
The 11th Indo-German Frontiers of Engineering Symposium – INDOGFOE 2021took place virtually from February 24 to 26, 2021. It is part of series of interdisciplinary, binational conferences which are co-organized by the Indian Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The activity brings together outstanding, early-career German and Indian engineers and natural scientists from industry, universities, and other research institutions to introduce their areas of engineering research and technical work, thereby facilitating an interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge and methodology that could eventually lead to the development of cooperative networks of young scientists from both countries.
This year conference covered the topics Advanced Communication and 5G Technologies, Energy Materials, Machine Learning and Big Data Analytics, and Sustainable Earth. Co-chairs have been Rabibrata Mukherjee of the Department of Chemical Engineering of the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur and Benedikt Schmülling, Chair of Electric Mobility and Energy Storage Systems of the University of Wuppertal. Tilmann Leisegang was invited for participating in the Energy Materils session with the contribution "The conversion and storage of energy: pyroelectrics and solid electrolytes". The special atmosphere of the conference, the excellent presentations, and the professional and versatile conference platform and program resulted in a high-quality very pleasant and delightful event.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation will support collaborations between German and Indian participants with its special follow-up program "CONNECT" which allocates residence allowances for working visits in their partner country for up to 30 days.
INDOGFOE conferences will be held annually, typically alternating between Germany and India, with about 30 scientists from each country participating. Participation is by invitation only.
