Our Services

Basic services

swissnex India hosts information sessions for visiting Swiss student and faculty delegations. We introduce Swiss universities (via a few emails) to our wide network of academic institutions in India. All Swiss -funded universities and universities of applied sciences can approach us for the above services free of cost.

Indian academic institutions can approach us to connect them to relevant Swiss institutions to initiate discussions on possible collaboration. If there is an ongoing collaboration between an Indian & Swiss institution, we are happy to host an information session for Indian & Swiss students.

We also offer workstations (subject to availability) to Swiss students or researchers from Swiss universities and universities of applied sciences, working on their Master thesis or doing their field work in India, up to one week, free of cost.
