Cooperation Oldenburg-Groningen

The University of Oldenburg and the University of Groningen have worked together closely for more than 40 years, having signed a cooperation agreement in 1980. With the founding of the University of Oldenburg's School of Medicine and Health Sciences this cooperation has deepened: the European Medical School, a joint project of the two universities, now offers a cross-border medical degree programme. This project is unique in Europe and sets new standards in medical education.

Groningen and Oldenburg scientists also collaborate closely in their work, creating synergies in pioneering areas of research. In addition, the two universities cooperate on clinical care services, ensuring that patients in the region benefit considerably from this German-Dutch collaboration.


The European Medical School aims to adopt new approaches in medical education. The teaching concept is practice-oriented and research-based – offering the chance to train highly qualified physicians for the region. The cross-border profile of this project makes it unique in Europe.
