European research universities publish set of principles for international cooperation in research
On 27 April 2022, the German U15, The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities and Udice put forward a joint statement on principles for international cooperation in research. The paper comes ahead of the ERA Forum’s Standing Subgroup on the Global Approach meeting at the beginning of May, where Member States representatives will be invited to exchange on the principles for international cooperation in research and innovation.
In their statement, the German U15, The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities and Udice underline their commitment to strengthen international cooperation in research, while mitigating the challenges associated with international partnerships. they also express their uncompromising solidarity with Ukrainian universities, including commitments to providing help and support for students and researchers from Ukraine affected by the war, and for Russian staff and students who face persecution for opposing it.
At the same time, the German U15, The Guild, and Udice emphasise that articulating a fair, democratic and sustainable response to the challenges Europe and the world are currently facing requires an effective cooperation between research universities worldwide.
