The International Relations Team supports the implementation and further development of the internationalisation strategy of the University and the Göttingen Campus. The department is responsible for maintaining and expanding international university partnerships and strategic networks. We advise the research community in its plans to establish and expand international relations and the students in their plans to complete part of their studies abroad.
We see ourselves as an interface between University management, faculties, scientists and scholars, students and administration. International Relations is divided into five regional desks and two liaison offices. These five regional desks frequently generate proposals for third-party funding to conduct projects in the respective regions. If these proposals are successfully evaluated, the project management remains within the regional desks. The regional desks also support proposals for third-party funding generated and managed in other departments by providing content-related input.
