University of Groningen
The universities of Oldenburg and Groningen have been working closely together for more than 30 years – the two institutions first signed a cooperation agreement as early as 1980. The foundation of the University Medical Centre in Oldenburg in 2012 marked another step towards intensifying this cooperation. In addition to the introduction of a joint medical degree programme, research activities in the field of medicine and health sciences were also stepped up.
