The five universities will build on their strong existing research links and also create an environment for forging new projects in medicine, the sciences, humanities and social sciences. The agreement takes longstanding research relationships to a unique institutional level, marking the first common agreement of all four Berlin institutions with an international partner.
Under the new partnership, Oxford academics and researchers will have a platform 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, there will be support for academics, researchers and students from Berlin to spend time in Oxford’s departments and colleges.
