Foreign branch officesCentres Abroad

Heidelberg University aims to strengthen its international visibility by establishing liaison offices around the world. These offices function as scientific hubs for regional studies, provide services to all institutions of the University and pave the way for international graduates to come to Heidelberg.

The University has used part of the funding from the Excellence Initiative to focus its international activities in new institutions and to enhance its strategy of interlacing transdisciplinarity with multilocal internationality. As a result, it has become an important stakeholder in the target regions, providing teaching, research and knowledge transfer to, with and in South Asia, East Asia, the two Americas and Europe.
