UoC Global

The University of Cologne (UoC) sees itself as a globally active and interconnected university. UoC regards  its research and teaching as a global responsibility for shaping the development of science and education, society and living conditions. Consequently, internationalization as a central issue of its strategic development and as a cross-sectional task in which all units of the University – from its headship over the faculties with their scholars, scientists, and students to the departments of the administration – work together and participate.

 Partnerships

Expanding internattional networks and partnerships and developing strategies and instruments to use them fruitfully at all levels of academic life, thus promoting its own transformation process, is at the heart of the UoC’s internationalization efforts.   Comprehensive cooperation in research, teaching, and campus management is intensified with a limited number of selected networks and universities. Within the framework of these networks and partnerships, the UoC strives for particularly close networking, e.g. through the intensive exchange of students, doctoral researchers, scholars and scientists, and administrative staff, through joint courses, study programmes and virtual cooperation as well as through joint research and third-party funded projects.

 Cologne International Forum (CIF)

The Cologne International Forum (CIF) was established in 2022 in order to offer a platform to showcase, foster, and bring together the existing international activities in research and teaching at the University of Cologne and to stimulate new innovative, international cooperations.

As a new institution, it is - and will remain for some time - a work in progress: The first cluster and tandems will start their collaborations at the end of 2022, the information provided in the international directory will grow over time, and more events will be planned soon. If you would like to receive news from the CIF, please subscribe to our newsletter.
