When Partners Become Friends - 40 Years of Cooperation with the University of Groningen

For the University of Oldenburg, it is the longest-lasting and most important international cooperation, concluded just over six years after the university was founded: the partnership with the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (RUG).

The two universities renewed their cooperation agreement, which was first signed 40 years ago, on Thursday, 29 October 2020. The ceremony took place in a small circle in Oldenburg Castle and was broadcast live on the internet. Lower Saxony's Minister of Science Björn Thümler was among the guests; due to the Corona pandemic, the Groningen partners were connected online. In addition, digital workshops and symposia took place on the day, some of them open to the public.
