INNO INDIGO and INDIGO POLICY projects on enhancing EU-India Cooperation in STI (2013-2017)

Categories: News


The INNO INDIGO and INDIGO POLICY projects ended in April 2017.

These two projects, which were launched in 2013, brought together a multi-level group of stakeholders from Europe and India in order to strengthen and further enhance the Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) collaboration between the EU and India.

INNO INDIGO, a horizontal ERA-Net with India was the successor project of New INDIGO (2009-2013), which successfully implemented schemes for EU-India transnational calls for proposals (New INDIGO Partnership Programme, NPP).

INDIGO POLICY was a project aimed at supporting the advancement of policy cooperation between India and Europe in research and innovation.

42 months of these two projects led to a bundle of achievements which are highlighted in the final publication “Enhancing Indo-European Cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation” presented at the Final Showcasing Event “Breaking Grounds in Research and Innovation through Indo-European Partnerships” on 26 April 2017 in Ghent, Belgium.

Furthermore, INDIGO POLICY published 12 policy briefs and reports on a wide range of topics, such as innovation issues in EU-India STI-cooperation, qualitative outcomes assessment study, technology transfer between EU and India and frugal innovation. The collection includes a selection of seven publications and further visual materials published by the INDIGO projects.
