The Indian center carries out active purposeful work on the organization of scientific conferences, round tables on various aspects of studying of the Indian civilization and its interaction with other cultures with broad participation of scientists, experts and students.
For formation of interest of students to India, development of their creative abilities and research work the round table conference is carried out twice an academic year : “My discovery of India” where students convey in English the messages on various aspects of the Indian culture. The best works are published in the Indian center newsletter. The great interest in students is caused by a quiz “Who knows about India” more.
