Strategic Partnership TU Darmstadt – Tongji University

Logo Tongji Universität

Technische Universität Darmstadt and Tongji University in Shanghai signed already in 1980 a cooperation contract and agreed on joint projects in teaching and research. Since then some selective cooperations evolved into a broad and trusted partnership with regular meetings, consultations and numerous joint projects.

The more than 30 year old cooperation comprises today many departments of TU Darmstadt and includes all levels of the scientific career – from the student to the early career researcher to the full professor. Tongji University in Shanghai is a strategic partner of TU Darmstadt.

Since March 2013 the strategic partnership between TU Darmstadt and Tongji University is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in the program “Strategic Partnerships and Thematic Networks” with means from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

The Strategic Partnership with Tongji University is at TU Darmstadt affilitated to division International Relations & Mobility, which belongs to Department VIII – International.
