Freie Universität Berlin to Partner with Oxford
Four Berlin institutions, Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, and the University of Oxford, have set out to create a new partnership which will open up exciting new initiatives across all academic disciplines.
The partnership will build on existing research links involving the five universities and create an environment for forging new projects in medicine, the sciences, humanities, and social sciences among all partners. The agreement will provide a platform for Oxford academics and researchers to spend time in Berlin, collaborating with colleagues in the Charité teaching hospital and the three Berlin universities, as well as the many other research institutes within the Berlin-Brandenburg region. At the same time, the partnership will provide support for academics, researchers, and students from Berlin to spend time in Oxford’s departments and colleges. The five institutions have already begun a program of academic workshops across several disciplines, which will be followed by further collaborative work between academics across all four Berlin partners and all four Oxford University academic divisions.
