Numerous research projects, for example in applied microbiology, textile technology, hydraulic engineering and water management, medical information technology, architecture, material sciences, and geosciences, demonstrate the range and potential of scientific collaborations. RWTH also especially values its links with India, as demonstrated by its special liaison office in New Delhi.
