Programs with Oxford, Melbourne and Singapore in cooperation with Berlin University Alliance (BUA)

Berlin University Alliance

With the inception of the Berlin University Alliance (BUA), consisting of the Free University of Berlin, the Humboldt University of Berlin, the Technical University Berlin and Charité – Universtitätsmedizin Berlin, the new partnership has set out long term goals towards intergrated research areas in Berlin.


In December 2017, the University of Oxford and the BUA partners signed a joint Memorandum of Understanding underpinning the establishment of a comprehensive, academic collaboration. The partnership is one of three current BUA strategic partnerships and enjoys a multilateral character, linking the strengths of the BUA in all research fields with those of the University of Oxford.

The partnership strives to support joint research undertakings, increased student and staff mobility and the development of structures fostering best practice e.g. fundraising, citizen science and technology transfer. It thus seeks to enhance existing synergies between the five institutions, whilst simultaneously encouraging new formats for collaboration.


The University of Melbourne and BUA are set to bring out supporting programs for their mutually collaborative research projects.

Building upon the already existing partnership which began in October 2018, the aim of the partnership will build on the existing partnerships and connections between the five Universities to support future research cooperations. To achieve this goal of greater integration and support, a funding program of EUR 500,000 has been established, which is open to scientists of all disciplines.


Within their new partnership, the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the BUA are seeking to strengthen their relationship and collaboration.The initial goal is to support new and innovative research projects in their efforts to generate external funding.
