In 2007, the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Indian National Science Academy (INSA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (renewed in 2012), thus highlighting their strategic partnership.
The Leopoldina-INSA Symposium will focus on the topic of nanoscience in Germany and India. Renowned scientists from Germany and India will address current and future trends in nanoscience in order to identify a common agenda for future German-Indian science cooperation.
The Conference is organized under the joint leadership of Professor Harald Fuchs ML from the University of Muenster and Professor Indranil Manna from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. The Leopoldina Presidium will be represented by Gunnar Berg ML, Vice President of the Leopoldina and Professor of Experimental Physics at the Martin Luther University, Halle-Wittenberg.
Each conference day will be begin with a key note speech by an internationally renowned expert in the field of nanoscience: On day one, Herbert Gleiter, member of the Leopoldina, will speak on the topic of “Nanostructured Amorphous Solids (Nanoglasses) – The Door to a New Generation of Technologies?”. The second day will be opened by Arup K. Raychaudhuri with a speech on “Electronic and Opto-electronic Measurements on Single Nanowire Devices”.
