Cooperation with the Berlin University Alliance (BUA) is an important goal of BR50. A variety of activities are already underway.
Many of the BR50 institutions already work closely with the alliance partners of the Berlin University Alliance (BUA) - be it in joint professorships and junior research groups, in collaborative research projects, PhD programs as well as graduate schools, or within the framework of the seven Berlin Clusters of Excellence Math+, Matters of Activity, NeuroCure, SCIoI, SCRIPTS, Temporal Communities and UniSysCat.
The BR50 Interest Group Collaboration between BR50 and BUA encompasses all activities in which the two major collaborative initiatives of the Brain City Berlin seek a regular dialogue. The goal is to further strengthen the cooperation between Berlin's non-university institutions and the universities in Berlin in strategic fields of action. On the one hand, this includes regular exchanges between the BR50 coordinators and the presidents of Berlin's universities on strategic questions of academia. On the other hand, exchange is also sought at the working level on topics that can be shaped even better together, for example in the promotion of diversity and equality in the Berlin research area.
