Global Partnerships

Research & innovation without borders

Tackling today's large and complex issues not only demands collaboration across diverse fields, but across international boundaries. Research drives new knowledge, discoveries and innovations that advance our lives and world and therefore should not happen in a vacuum or be bound by geographic or national boundaries.

UAlberta is globally focused and active via our research collaborations, researchers and students. Our partnerships span the globe and involve other universities, research institutes, governments, government agencies, non-profits, technical institutes, industry, foundations and community organizations.

International partnerships and collaborations exist at all levels of our organization: institutional, faculty, department and individual faculty member level. Because of this and the large number of collaborations, this page will only highlight institutional level partnerships. Details on collaborations at other levels can be found on faculty websites and the sites of individual faculty members, research groups, labs, and centers and institutes.
