Who we are

The Indo-German Centre for Sustainability (IGCS) conducts research on current sustainability challenges and disseminates the knowledge thus generated. In order to achieve that, IGCS offers funding opportunities for individual research exchange between junior and senior researchers from both Germany and India. Another focus of IGCS is knowledge transfer through Summer and Winter Schools carried out in both countries. IGCS premises are located at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras in Chennai, India.

India and Germany are committed to promote and implement sustainability. The essence of sustainability is a stable relationship between human activities and the natural world. There is an evident need for further, coherent reform towards full integration of sustainability and environmental concerns in mainstream socio-techno-economic development, especially in securing and protecting our resources such as water and energy, and in infrastructure development considering land use and waste management.

With its vast network of scientists and practitioners and its activities, IGCS is a source of inspiration and skills, conceptual models and standards, as well as best-practice examples for proactive transformation. It offers highly esteemed human capital and solutions for various global challenges affecting India, Germany and other countries.
