The Oxford Berlin Research Partnership

About our collaboration


The Oxford-Berlin Research Partnership was established in 2017 and includes the University of Oxford as well as the Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin and the Charité – Universitätmedizin Berlin. 

Our goal is to reduce barriers and build bridges between academics and institutions to promote collaborative research. We are enhancing existing links between Oxford and the Berlin universities and research institutes, and have created an environment for taking forward new projects, covering all areas of academic research as well as initiatives involving the museums and libraries in both Oxford and Berlin. The partnership seeks to foster and support cutting-edge research, including cross-cutting thematic and inter-disciplinary work; knowledge exchange and public engagement; and developing the prospects of early career researchers and doctoral students. It builds on the tremendous strength and range of research in Oxford and Berlin, supporting academics in addressing global challenges and developing their European and global academic links, including in the Global South.

We have already funded 37 workshops and nearly 60 seed-funded projects, in which around 1,000 academics, researchers and students have taken part.
