Partners and collaboration

Introduction UT Country Coordinators

We are an international, collaborative and entrepreneurial university, where experimenting, pioneering and risk-taking are actively encouraged. The world around us offers numerous opportunities, where national borders may not impede our strive for excellence in education, research and knowledge transfer activities.

Country-specific Knowledge and Expertise

Internationalization, 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. UT country coordinators have been assigned to bridge the knowledge gap for a number of selected countries and international strategic partner universities (ISP), and create synergies within the UT and strategic value in our collaboration with international partners.
