The development of the strategic partnership is the most important aspect of university activity. Strategic partnership is a comprehensive multidisciplinary cooperation with strictly selected partners. The implementation of the Strategic partnership program allows developing the internationalization of the university, leading to an increase in the reputation of universities. We have only one strategic partner in Austria. Our universities have a long history of collaboration (since 1985). We are cooperating on a range of scientific areas, cultural exchanges, formula Student. We hope that together we will raise the international reputation of our universities and wish our colleagues a great success!
