International Relations

The Academy views the extension and intensification of its international relations as one of its important tasks, both currently as well as in the future.

The bilateral international agreements that have been signed in this context since 1996 – the Agreement on Scientific Cooperation as well as the Memorandum of Understanding – have the character of cooperation agreements. Primarily, they are to set a formal framework for a closer cooperation between the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (formerly Prussian Academy of Sciences) and its partners abroad, especially in regard to concerted scientific events and projects (such as symposia, conferences and workshops), as well as the exchange of scientists and information.

The Academy's various international cooperations have contributed, and continue to contribute to the further advancement of research in the context of the Academies Programme and the Interdisciplinary Research Groups, as well as the collected activities of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities – in particular in the development of scientific networks.
