Background and objectives

6 European and Indian Partner organizations are focusing on achieving one objective –

To increase the S&T cooperation between India and the EU by creating a “one-stop shop” for funding opportunities that are available in India for European organizations.


The INDIA GATE project will identify Indian research and innovation funding programmes, the obstacles that inhibit EU researchers and organizations from taking part in the identified opportunities and make the information available in a user-friendly manner to stimulate, encourage and facilitate participation. INDIA GATE will bring EU-India scientific cooperation forward by an increased participation of European organisations in Indian funding programmes and contribute to an increased mutual understanding of EU-India respective research systems.
