As new centers of excellence in education, research, and innovation have emerged around the world, it has become more important than ever for MIT to engage with leading international partners.

Types of Collaborations

We collaborate with universities, governments, companies, non-profits, and a broad range of other institutions. Most international collaborations involve individual members of the faculty and research staff, usually working with students. Sometimes MIT also seeks to establish larger working relationships.

The MIT administration is committed to encouraging and supporting faculty members’ international activities, and to identifying faculty leaders whose academic interests align with the objectives of larger projects. Often, these major collaborations are built on successful relationships previously established by a member of the faculty.
