International Partnerships

Since its new foundation in 1991, the University of Potsdam has established a number of international partnerships in the European research area. The close relationship to France with the Franco-German University (DFH) as well as to the neighboring country Poland is worth mentioning in particular. The most important element in these exchange relationships are the currently 270 Erasmus+ partnerships, which link the university with several universities all over Europe and beyond. Outside Europe, the University of Potsdam has particularly close contacts with Israel. In addition, the university alliance European Digital UniverCity (EDUC) with seven other European universities from France, Italy, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Spain, and Norway has been a special strategic focus since 2019.
