The first four Max Planck Partner Groups in India were inaugurated in a gala ceremony at the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi in 2004. The aim was to cement relationships between Max Planck Institutes and their former Indian guest scientists. One year later, the MPG also intensified its cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and founded a Partner Institute for Biological Sciences in Shanghai in 2005. The Institute conducts research into biological networks and works closely with Institutes of experimental science and biomathematics research.
