Message from the President
President of Heidelberg University
Beginning with 1990, Heidelberg University and Kyoto University have been fostering mutual student exchange, interdisciplinary research across national boundaries, and fruitful cooperation in various fields of study.
The opening of the two overseas offices at both universities is an important step in our partnership. Opened in 2014, the “Heidelberg Office” of the Kyoto University European Center continues to strengthen the mutual relationship between our universities and more generally promotes contacts between Japanese and European universities.
With the opening of the Heidelberg University Office, Kyoto, we will intensify our close cooperation and enter a new dimension of academic exchange between Japan and Germany.
