The Cologne International Forum (CIF) was established in 2022 in order to offer a platform to showcase, foster, and bring together the existing international activities in research and teaching at the University of Cologne and to stimulate new innovative, international collaborations.

As a new institution, it is - and will remain for some time - a work in progress: The first cluster and tandems have been chosen now and will start their collaborations soon, the information provided in the international directory will grow over time, and more events will be planned soon. If you would like to receive news from the CIF, please subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Twitter.
