Uppsala University's strategic partnership encompasses several science areas and topics. They consist of collaborations on personal mobility, education, recruitment and research collaborations.

The goals of our strategic partnerships are to

  • Create long-term collaboration for mutual development
  • Enhance the quality of our research and education
  • Further understanding of needs, and solutions to society's challenges

The initiative for a strategic partnership can be taken by Uppsala University's management or an external partner. The Vice-Chancellor, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-Rectors take part of the steering group for each strategic partnership.
