Partners for academic cooperation


Kyoto University's network of international partners is essential to its operations as a globally active institution. Diverse forms of collaboration with partners around the world are vital to the University’s efforts to drive innovation and creativity in education and research.

Partnerships and collaboration are generally facilitated by formal bilateral cooperation agreements or multilateral collaboration through consortia and networks of universities.

These partnerships are the platform from where the University pursues joint research projects, researcher-, student-, and staff-mobility programs, technology-transfer initiatives, and international events, such as jointly-held research workshops and symposia that enable the sharing of cutting-edge research outcomes with wider society.
