International network of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München

Since its foundation in 1472, LMU’s faculty and students have crossed borders to carry out research, teach and study abroad. The work in its libraries, laboratories and lecture halls have been enriched by international perspectives and diverse approaches. Today, LMU maintains more than 600 cooperation agreements with partner universities around the globe.

Strategic partnerships

LMU has concluded strategic cooperation agreements with renowned partner universities in Europe, North America and Asia. These agreements underpin successful research contacts and support innovative forms of cooperation:

Global collaborations

Collaborations with universities, networks and science organizations enhance our research, improve the quality of teaching and learning, and drive innovation. They open up global opportunities for our researchers and staff – as for example, in the following projects:

EU projects

LMU has long participated with great success in EU-funded programs in the fields of research and innovation. These include not only the current Framework Program “Horizon 2020”, but also the European Universities Initiative and projects on the exchange of best practices and measures in political education (Key Actions 2 and 3). In this context, LMU can count on its extensive network of partner universities and the excellent international contacts maintained by its teachers and researchers.

Erasmus+ mobility network

Students can take advantage of the renowned European ERASMUS+ Programme to spend a semester or two at one of our 380 ERASMUS partner universities. The programme also promotes the mobility of lecturers and university staff, and supports university cooperation in teaching and studying within and beyond Europe.

LMUexchange mobility network

LMU encourages and facilitates study abroad, as exchange programs enable students, faculty and administrative staff to gain invaluable international experience.

  • 20 extensive university cooperations and 200 LMUexchange partnerships around the world make active scientific exchange in various disciplines and study-abroad experiences – including joint study programs – possible.
  • The Munich Summer University invites international students at all levels to attend exclusive courses and undertake short-term research projects in a broad variety of disciplines.
  • LMU’s International network is complemented by a multitude of cooperations and exchange activities at Faculty and professorial levels.

European Higher Education Organization

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe. The EHEO general plan stresses that: Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected. The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders. Thus, EHEO plans: improve academic and scientific interaction of universities; protect the interests of universities; interact more closely with public authorities of European countries; popularize European higher education in the world; develop academic mobility; seek funding for European universities.
