As early as 2004, the Humbold-Universität zu Berlin, the University of Vienna and the University of Zurich formed a strategic alliance in order to exchange ideas about the universities, to learn from and to help one another. The focus is on meetings at the presidential level, which take place two to three times a year.

All three universities are comprehensive universities with a similar profile and the same interests, which are mutually beneficial. In addition to the joint evaluation of teaching, research and administration, it is also about promoting young scientists. In the field of economics, there is already a joint Master’s offer.
