Marking the anniversary year "Fifty Years of Diplomatic Relations between Germany and Israel," Freie Universität Berlin created a website that reflects the university’s history of scientific and academic cooperation with universities in Israel as well as featuring current projects and forms of cooperation.
The idea of creating an institutional framework for academic contacts to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem was already in place in 1957, but it took almost 30 years, until Freie Universität Berlin and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem concluded an official partnership agreement in 1986.
In the meantime, the two universities are cooperating within a strategic partnership, which includes numerous joint research projects in the natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences as well as student exchange.
Tel Aviv University (TAU) is also a strong partner of Freie Universität in Israel. Since 2013 a total of eleven bilateral research workshops were jointly selected by TAU and Freie Universität and approved for equally awarded funds.
