On 1 September 2021, the Presidents and VPs of Freie Universität Berlin (FU) and University of Zurich (UZH) as well as researchers and staff of both universities met in Berlin. Due to the pandemic, it was the first personal meeting after two years and it was highly appreciated.
Since 2017, FU and UZH have built a strategic partnership. The alliance has led to joint research projects, particularly in the fields of natural science, neuroscience, humanities and psychology. Joint teaching projects are to follow in the future. Both Executive Boards appreciate the trusting cooperation and decided to further deepen the partnership.
