IGCS’ flagship bi-annual teaching projects- Winter School (in IIT Madras, India) and Summer School (in German partner university) are designed to provide participants a comprehensive interdisciplinary outlook on modern environmental issues and innovations. The schools are held under a motto from one of our IGCS focus areas and are organized by our respective area coordinators and their partners. The 2-week long set of seminars, field visits and tutorial workshops train scholars from diverse academic and cultural backgrounds to collaborate for a research topic.

You can view the testimonials from our alumni in the video playlist below:
