Representatives of the network recently visited Indian facilities like the TERI University, Indian Institute of Technology, German Research Foundation - DFG and the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research. In order to initiate and also strengthen this cooperation, BalticNet-PlasmaTec is looking for Indian joint-venture partners that can help adapt the technology to the needs of the Indian market and cooperate on education initiatives.
