Hari Sridhar awarded a Max Planck-India Mobility Grant for the period 2025-2027

We're very happy to announce that Hari Sridhar has been awarded a Max Planck-India Mobility Grant for the period 2025-2027. The grant will allow Hari to spend a month every year in the 'Knowledge Systems and Collective Life' department of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG) in Berlin, working on shared research interests and developing ideas for collaboration between MPIWG and the Archives at the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bengaluru. In particular, Hari hopes to work closely with MPIWG's newly launched Laboratory for Oral History and Experimental Media, to participate in efforts to develop new approaches to oral histories of knowledge.

The Max Planck-India Mobility Grant (MPIMG): Max Planck-India Mobility Grants are a distinction awarded to highly qualified Indian scientists who should be in their final year of doctorate or have obtained their doctorate no longer than ten years ago. MPIMG are awarded for three years enabling the candidates to initiate and pursue research links to a Max Planck Institute of their choice. Candidates have the right to visit a Max Planck Institute (MPI) for a minimum of one month per year. In order not to forfeit the MPIMG these visits to the Max Planck Institute must take place regularly every year.

Our heartiest congratulations to Hari, and best wishes as you progress in your career!
