University of Berne
Bern’s researchers and lecturers form part of a strong global network. International collaboration takes place in various ways in both research and teaching, from sporadic contact with colleagues to formal collaboration as part of cooperation and exchange agreements as well as through the operation of joint competence centres. To encourage international networking through exchange of information and collaboration, the University supports central points of contact for students, researchers and lecturers.
The University of Bern has defined the following goals with regard to international networking:
- The University is to maintain and consolidate global networking, thus increasing its visibility as a research and teaching institution of the region surrounding the Swiss capital. International relations and collaboration serve to bring about specific goals in teaching and research, and will be promoted purposefully and appropriately in order to achieve these goals.
- To keep the quality of teaching and research high, the University is to actively encourage the international exchange of lecturers and researchers with other universities.
- The University is also to support international student exchanges.
- In particular, the competence centres will contribute to international networking.
