The facility will serve as a 'one-stop shop' for students, researchers and potential partner institutions and disseminate information about higher education in Germany, a statement issued by the German embassy here.

New Delhi is one of the five focal points for enhanced German academic and research cooperation, along with Sao Paolo Moscow, New York and Tokyo, it said.

To mark the inauguration of the facility here, the embassy and the German Research Foundation (DFG) will be organising a 'Grand Science Slam' on October 27.
