Global Responsibility


Based on our main pillars – Capacity Building, Academic Refugee Support, Public Private Partnership – the Global Responsibility Unit at the International Office of the University of Cologne is in charge of facilitating and enhancing exchange with academic partners in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America, providing refugees with academic assistance and extending its network with Cologne’s corporate world.

Our two liaison offices: the University of Cologne – China NRW Office in Beijing and the University of Cologne Office in India are also fundamental players in guaranteeing institutionalised and improved networking to international universities and other research partners. We also collaborate closely with the Centres for International Cooperation (ZIBs) at the faculties of the University of Cologne and the Global South Studies Centre in the same University.
