The CNRS signed 3 agreements for scientific cooperation with its Indian partners, the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, the Indian Institute of Technology Madras and Ashoka University, in the frame of the visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to India.

The Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (IISc) was created in 1909 and is one of the most prestigious institutes for higher education and research in India.. IISc is the first partner of CNRS in India. 3 excellent structuring initiatives with India out of 9 are supported by CNRS and IISc : Ifcam Joint International Unit in mathematics, based in IISc’ office in Bangalore, and 2 International Associatd Laboratories in chemistry and nuclear physics. A Memorandum of Agreement (MoU) between CNRS and IISc was signed 2013. The renewal of this MoU for 4 more years provides a fruitful groudnwork to strengthen cooperation between the two research institutions.

A Framework of Agreement between CNRS, the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM), Mines Telecom Atlantique Institute, Bordeaux University and Ecole Centrale in Nantes enabling PhD students from both countries to be co-directed by researchers from those institutions was also signed during this visit.

The International Associated Laboratory « Social Profile of Indian National and Provincial Elected Representatives (1919-2019) » (SPINPER) gathers CNRS researchers as well as researchers from SciencesPo Paris, SciencesPo Bordeaux, Bordeaux University and Ashoka University in India. Its major objective is to build and analyse a database collecting the Indian National and Provincial Elected Representatives’ social and political backgrounds since the colonial era in order to reinforce knowledge in India’s political evolution. The Indian and French teams have worked together for already 10 years and their work is remarquably complementary regarding data collecting, data treatment and data interpretation.
