The cooperation of the University of Oxford and the four partner institutions of the Berlin University Alliance – Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin – represents a completely new form of international cooperation at an institutional level.

The partnership builds on diverse, existing research relationships between the five institutions and creates an environment for new joint projects in the humanities, social sciences, medicine, and STEM. Within the framework of Seed Funding Projects and the OX/BER Centre for Advanced Studies jointly founded in 2020, excellent, innovative and interdisciplinary research partnerships are supported.

Since signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish the far-reaching cooperation in December 2017, more than 1,000 scientists from all fields and disciplines, junior researchers, students, and university administration staff have already been involved in the partnership programmes. In total, almost two million euros have been provided for joint activities to date.
