fostering alliances that accelerate innovation, digitalization, and technological advances between Germany and India
The German Indian Innovation Corridor is a vision and mission to bundle the many roads and partnerships between both countries into one express highway. We aim to bring together stakeholders from politics, business, academia, and development cooperation to speed up innovation partnerships, facilitate cross-border collaboration, and accelerate the implementation of digitalization efforts.
Creating an environment in which India and Germany effectively leverage each other's strengths and develop mutually beneficial synergies will help build an alliance of equal partners.
German companies are in need of digitization capacities
India offers strong and competitive software and IT execution, as well as skilled workforce
India’s economy is in need of expertise in manufacturing, machinery and the industrial domain
An area where Germany is historically strong and globally competitive
SMEs in India are a growing factor and starting to internationalize
An unprecedented opportunity and potential for the strong German Mittelstand
Germany is looking to diversify supply chains and improve their resilience and sustainability
An area where India offers opportunity and potential.
New economies such as green energy, artificial intelligence, smart production, and Industry 4.0 are fields of mutual synergies of both countries in the future
While there are a number of strong intermediaries and organizations that support collaboration between the two countries, we specifically see a gap in the areas of innovation, technology exchange, and cooperation. Our mission is to enable innovation at speed and foster mutual economic development by creating a more concerted effort in German-Indian relationships. We fill the existing gaps by combining different initiatives and focusing on raw innovation.
ACTIVITIES MAY HAVE DIFFERENT SPEEDS AND GOALS BUT THE OVERALL SETUP SHOULD BE ENABLED TO GAIN TRACTION AND MOVE FORWARD FOR THE BENEFIT OF BOTH COUNTRIES ALIKE
WE INTEGRATE ALL STAKEHOLDERS ACTIVE BETWEEN GERMANY AND INDIA NOT REPLACING, COMPETING OR DOING THE WORK OF ANY ORGANIZATION, ESPECIALLY NOT THE MEMBERS
THE WHOLE IS MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS. WE CALIBRATE AND ENERGIZE AN ECOSYSTEM SO THAT THE PLURALITY OF PLAYERS AND INITIATIVES LEAD TO CONSISTENT COLLABORATION
We are a group of German and Indian professionals from the fields of business, politics, administration, and academia, with years of experience in bridging relations between the two countries. We see a window of opportunity to prioritize German-Indian relations on the political and economic agenda. We strongly believe that both countries would benefit from closer and more intensified relationships, and the time is now!
The German Indian Innovation Council (GIIC) is currently in the process of establishing itself as a non-profit organization in Germany (gemeinnütziger Verein; e.V.) with both institutional and individual members, as well as an institutional counterparts in India.
Our doors are wide open to collaborators and like-minded individuals who resonate with our mission and feel the urge to enhance German-Indian relationships in this regard.
