Internationally connected

Of course, it is the diversity of contacts and scientific networks of the individual researchers that represents the global profile of the Charité. In addition, at an institutional level, the Charité systematically promotes international networking through strategic partnerships, institutional networks, research cooperations and clinical partnerships. 

Oxford University, UK

The University of Oxford along with four Berlin institutions – the Freie Universität, the Humboldt-Universität of Berlin, the Technische Universität Berlin and the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin – are about to start a new partnership that will open new and exciting waves in the academic disciplines.

The partnership will be structured on existing research relationships between the five institutions. It will also create an environment for new common projects in the field of medicine, natural science, humanities and social science. The agreement will give scientists and researchers from the University of Oxford the opportunity to work closely with colleagues from the Charité and the three Berlin universities as well as several research institutes in the region of Berlin-Brandenburg during their stay in Berlin. At the same time, it will enable university graduates, researchers and students from Berlin to spend time at the University of Oxford too.

At a later stage, a Berlin-Oxford research center will also be set up in Berlin and a “Berliner Haus” in Oxford too.

European University Hospital Alliance (EUHA)

Established in 2017, the European University Hospital Alliance (EUHA) thrives to share its excellence with nine of the best medical universities in Europe in the field of health care, research and teaching.

Among the actors within the health care system, the university clinics play a specific role as pioneers and catalysts for innovation. The overarching goal of EUHA members is to actively shape the future of healthcare in Europe, to exchange good practice examples for the benefit of patients, and to advance medical research at the highest Level.

Concrete goals of the EUHA are:

  • to generate better outcomes for patients for today and tomorrow,
  • to support the professional development and qualifications of employees in all areas and at all Levels, and 
  • to strengthen relationships with partners in the field of politics, science and economics.
