International networks and cooperation
As an employee of Uppsala University, you are welcome to participate in and utilise any international network the University is part of. The networks, which provide an opportunity for collaboration and exchange within research, education, administrative work and other support functions, include universities in and outside of Europe:
- Coimbra: About 41 universities throughout Europe, the purpose of the network is to exchange experiences and create contacts in education and research.
- Enlight: The Enlight consortium, consisting of nine universities in Europe. Researchers and teachers at UU can receive funding to develop courses and other types of collaborations in education and research.
- The Guild: Strategic network for pursuing policy in education and research issues at EU level.
- ACCESS: For researchers and teachers who want to collaborate with Chile.
- Mirai: For researchers and teachers who want to collaborate with Japan.
- Matariki: Seven universities in Australia, Europe, North America and New Zeeland
- SANORD: Opportunity to participate in annual conferences with researchers and teachers from universities in southern Africa and the Nordic countries.
- Sasuf: For researchers and teachers who want to collaborate with South Africa.
Employees may apply for partial funding from Uppsala University for participating in activities within these networks. Please note that the funding is limited and comes in the form of seed money intended to stimulate new engagement and new activities. This might entail, for instance, travel grants and funding for the planning of workshops, joint applications or courses. There is a specific application form that should be used, and instructions that should be consulted when completing the form. For more information, contact the coordinator of the network in question (see below or under the heading of each network).
Partnership with Collège de France
Uppsala University has a partnership with Collège de France, which means that teachers and researchers at Uppsala University may give guest lectures at Collège de France and vice versa.
