International Networks

TU Darmstadt is a member of international networks which unite leading universities of technology in Europe and other countries worldwide.

These networks support the pooling of interests and enhance the visibility of participating universities. They promote a long-term and trusting collaboration, which provides the institutional framework for joint cooperation in research, teaching and administration.


The Consortium Linking Universities of Science and Technology for Education and Research (CLUSTER) network consists of 12 leading universities of technology in Europe, of which TU Darmstadt is one. Within the framework of CLUSTER, the European universities collaborate in the fields of studies, teaching and research. They offer joint double degree programmes or write joint European Union research proposals.
