Invited by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation: COAST member Dr.-Ing. Alexandra Pehlken serves in organizing committee for INDOGFOE Symposium.
Dr.-Ing. Alexandra Pehlken is invited to be a member of the Organizing Committee for the 6th Indo-German Frontiers of Engineering Symposium in 2014. Therefore, she was participating in the 5th INDOGFOE taking place from March 14 to 17, 2013 in Hyderabad, India and presented her research on material assessment in car recycling technologies. In India, the Organizing Committee met for its preparation meeting for the 6th symposium in Germany.
The Indo-German Frontiers of Engineering Symposia (INDOGFOE) are a series of interdisciplinary, binational conferences which are co-organized by the Indian Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Funding on the German side is provided by the Federal Foreign Office. The activity brings together outstanding, early-career German and Indian engineers from industry, universities, and other research institutions to introduce their areas of engineering research and technical work, thereby facilitating an interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge and methodology that could eventually lead to the development of cooperative networks of young engineers from both countries.
