In a world of global networks, we have the unprecedented opportunity to search for solutions for societal challenges together. Therefore, Paderborn University has been systematically advancing its internationalisation for many years. The proportion of international students at UPB is growing and outstanding cooperations have been established worldwide, encouraging a continuous development in research, transfer, studies and teaching. Not only do we want to diversify international cooperation and exchange in the future, but we also want to make it more inclusive and sustainable, as well as climate- and resource-friendly.
Paderborn University excels in research, as can be surmised from its cooperation with partners worldwide, international projects and prizes, as well as outstanding researchers from all over the world. Our researchers are offered excellent opportunities for worldwide networking through funding from the European Union (EU), the German Research Foundation (DFG), and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
Preserving academic freedom, becoming socially active, promoting international mobility, and much more: Paderborn University is pursuing ambitious, future-oriented goals in cooperation with research institutions around the world. UPB strives for progress in a variety of ways, which is reflected in its membership in numerous networks that span the globe.
