University partnerships are an important component for the University of Potsdam in the process of establishing an international profile. These partnerships, which are facilitated by the Executive Board, support the entire range of the university’s activities. Along with the development of study-related exchange programs, cooperative PhD programs and research projects, it is also possible, depending on contractual arrangements, for units that play a supporting role for the sciences to carry out their own partnership activities. These partnerships are typically designed in such a way that different faculties, institutes and departments work on cooperative projects.

Partnerships in priority regions

The priority countries identified by the Executive Board: Russia, Poland, France, Turkey, Central and South America, Australia, Israel, Southern Africa and the USA.

Further Partnerships

Alongside the priority regions, there are plenty other cooperations between the University of Potsdam and international universities.
