International cooperation: Rectorate determines regional priority and strategic partners International cooperation: Rectorate determines regional priority and strategic partners

International cooperation forms the foundation of all internationalization activities at the University of Bonn. There are already many connections in the world today. Building on this diversity, the Rectorate has now defined regional priorities for international cooperation. These include strategic partner universities on the one hand and the definition of certain priority countries on the other. The university management pays special attention to cooperation with countries of the so-called "Global South".
