EU Projects

The B M Birla Science Centre has undertaken prestigious multi year projects (Hydrology, HyWaMis, Asia Urbs), with other European Institutes under the European Union Economic Cross Cultural Programme and other European Programmes. Under this a large number of workshops on Software and Technology topics are organized both in India and in Europe.

Europe And India: Past, Present And Future

The general aim of the project “Europe and India: Past, Present and Future”, co-financed by the European Commission in the framework of the “EU-India Economic Cross-Cultural Programme”, was to extend Indo-European co-operation, in the field of physics and mathematics to the applications of mechanical sciences and computer science to engineering extended to management, environment etc. The Project was implemented in Italy, India and Austria. Under this cooperation was a joint research project in Hydrology, a topic of great relevance both in India and Europe.

The project’s aim was to establish a network to develop collaborative interaction, research and other common activities both in Europe and India in the area of mechanical sciences, industrial automation, hydrology, environment, management, experts in water management, water exploration, water protection, chief executives from central and state government and engineers and experts working in industry and so on. The broad objectives of the project were to bring together scientists, research workers and experts in Europe and India, promote collaboration with scientists belonging to institutions not involved in the project and prepare ground for possible extension of the network in India and in Europe.
