LMU extends formal cooperation with the University of California at Berkeley for a further five years
“Our aim is to intensify this strategically important partnership in the coming years,” said LMU President Bernd Huber. “The many collaborative research projects we have successfully carried out together over the last few years have helped to enhance LMU’s international reputation as an outstanding German research university.”
The overarching aim of the program entitled “LMU-Berkeley Research in the Humanities” is to enable collaborative research projects that use innovative approaches to be carried out. These will be selected by a committee made up of representatives of the Humanities. Established scholars and junior researchers from both universities will formulate problems cooperatively and work together to solve them, as well as organizing bilateral conferences and publishing their results in scholarly journals. In addition, LMU has set up a Visiting Professorship specifically for guest academics from Berkeley.
