India and Germany are to carry out research in the field of genomics and develop evidence-based guidelines supported with latest technologies like Artificial Intelligence and machine learning so as to integrate Ayurvedic principles and practises into modern medicine for the wider reach to the masses.

For this work, the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) under Ministry of AYUSH has signed a MoU with Frankfurter Innovationszentrum Biotechnologie GmbH (FiZ) in Delhi on 31 Oct 2019.

The MoU was signed by Prof. Tanuja Nesari Director AIIA and Dr Christian Garbe, Managing Director of Frankfurter Innovationszentrum Biotechnologie GmbH (FiZ).

It was agreed at FiZ on the occasion of the event “German/Indian knowledge exchange regarding current developments in the health care sector” by Dr Garbe with Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha, Secretary, Ministry of AYUSH, during September of this year.

Another component of the MoU will be the exchange of knowledge and experiences.

Speaking after the singing of the MOU, Dr. Vaidya, Secretary, AYUSH said that the systems appear to be quiet different at first glance. On deeper observation, it appears that both the sciences can support each other. Complementing the traditional Ayurveda Medicine with conventional concepts of Biotechnology is expected in generating evidences that further help in contributing to the global healthcare, he added.

On this occasion, Dr. Garbe said that for years there have been diverse contacts with India in order to foster both, share experience and know-how in our network and render technological knowledge economically usable as well. He explained that empirical medicine and precision medicine will become productive partners.
