International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU)
The University of Copenhagen is organising the scientific congress in March 2009 in cooperation with the partners in the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU).
IARU is an alliance of ten of the world's leading research universities:
The Alliance was created in 2006 with the purpose of a strategic drawing together of universities that share a similar vision and have a committment to educate future leaders.
The Alliance will encourage and support the following activities:
- Summer (northern hemisphere) internships;
- Key conferences where participation/contribution from alliance academics will be encouraged;
- Student exchange at both undergraduate and postgraduate level;
- Development of joint/dual degree arrangements; and
- Arrangements at each university to support faculty exchange
The Australian National University Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Chubb AC has been elected as chairman for the period inclusive 2006-2009.
