Expanding international networks

Partnerships and consortia

Expanding our international partner networks and participating in international research consortia are crucial in the process of SWPS University’s internationalization. Through partnerships and networking, we can accelerate the process of internationalization with respect to research cooperation and increased mobility of our researchers. Furthermore, contributing to international consortia will help us improve access to European funds available to institutional, educational and research collaborations focused on the development of high quality international research initiatives.

Contributing to the global body of knowledge

International projects

There are nearly 30 research centers at SWPS University, which obtain international research grants for advanced research projects in the disciplines of social sciences and humanities. Our researchers actively initiate international research projects or contribute their knowledge and expertise to international collaborations. Currently, international projects constitute a larger portion of our EUR 25 million research budget. One of the priorities of our international strategy is to increase the number of high quality research projects conducted in cooperation with international partners and research centers.
