The International Relations & Partnerships team (IRP) is the strategic hub of expert knowledge relating to the internationalisation of higher education and research. As such there is close cooperation with not only our own team at SOIR, but also SP's internationalisation cluster, agreement coordinators, exchange - and internship coordinators, faculty internationalisation coordinators (fainco's), international support staff, country coordinators, the Platform Internationalisation Affairs (PIA), the national LOUIS group, and the national UPI group.
IRP specialises in UT-wide inter-institutional partnerships and advice on the deployment and optimization of governance of EU and non-EU agreement and contract processes. We monitor global developments in credit- and degree mobility opportunities and explore scholarship programmes for (non-)degree seekers (bachelor's/master's/PhD) and staff. The current portfolio of our current agreements with our UT-wide partner institutions is complemented by the Erasmus+ programme, contribution to ECIU University, as well as policy on internationalisation of education, and Duty of Care.

Internationalisation, international collaboration, and partnerships are key priorities for the University of Twente, which requires best practices and the available knowledge and expertise to be shared within and outside the university. Our UT country coordinator disseminates knowledge on Mexico, and on international strategic partner universities (ISP). The country coordinators create synergies within the UT and strategic value in our collaboration with international partners.
