The University of Georgia collaborates with international partner institutions in ways that reinforce and complement each insititution's strengths and lead to mutually beneficial outcomes that could not be achieved individually by either institution. The Office of International Education's International Partnership branch has resources available for faculty wishing to propose a general cooperative agreement, student exchange or collaborative degree.
UGA welcomes research collaboratons and partnerships with researchers from all over the world to investigate critical issues of global significance. Research partnerships may be as simple as a UGA graduate student working in the laboratory at a foreign partner institution or may involve a funded center using multi-disciplinary faculty from both institutions to explore numerous issues in a broad field.
International partnerships between the University of Georgia and the private sector present unique opportunities. The University of Georgia can offer corporate partners operating internationally critical research and technology transfer, a skilled workforce, and professional development. In return, global corporate partners of UGA often fund scholarships and faculty positions at the University of Georgia, provide internships to students, and support research. The University's Innovation Gateway under the OVPR offers licensing and startup incubation opportunities as well as access to high-tech Research Core Facilities.
