In December 2007, a group of students and three teachers (Daniel Andersson, Åke Sander and Clemens Cavallin) of religious studies at Gothenburg University travelled to India for a month of experiences, studies and developing of contacts with Indian universities. This was the beginning of a series of activities at the Department of Literature, History of Ideas, and Religion directed toward facilitating both student and teacher exchange with India.
The impressions and reflections of those who participated in this first journey east are gathered in the volume India on my mind which is available as Open Access (though in Swedish).
Since then the department has arranged several field study trips to India.

During the period 2011 to 2013 LIR:s coopoeration with India was part of go:india, a project at the University of Gothenburg promoting exchange and cooperation with Indian universities.
