Building Strong Partnerships

Fueling global discovery and innovation

Collaboration is the cornerstone of scientific discovery and education. We place high priority on partnerships based on a ‘best fit’ model that align with our strategic plan, are mutually beneficial, and advance our goals to catalyze transformation in Canada and the world.

Our partnership models include:

  • Teaching and research collaborations abroad and at home 

  • Exchange, research, and collaborative degree programs for undergraduate and graduate students 

  • International development through capacity-building and sharing expertise 

  • Training programs and short courses 

We welcome ideas and suggestions from external parties and University of Calgary community members for new projects and proposals. Working closely with our colleagues at University of Calgary International, we’ll help you develop your plan and see it fully realized.
