Partnerships and Cooperation Agreements

International partnerships have a long tradition in Greifswald. Since the University was founded, there has always been a keen exchange of academics, students and ideas, at first only in the Baltic Sea Region, but throughout the world for a long time now too. Within Europe, Greifswald has signed more than 200 partnership contracts in the European ERASMUS+ network.
