About the information provided here
The main criterion for inclusion in the list of representative offices abroad is that at least one person represents the interests of the university or university alliance locally, while being integrated into the central organisational structure of the university or university alliance in Germany. The information was provided to the HRK by the relevant universities and university alliances.
Representative offices of German universities abroad that are primarily concerned with teaching and research activities and representative offices of individual faculties, departments or institutes are not included in this list. The same applies to offices of German research organisations abroad, diplomatic representations, liaison offices of German federal states, cities or other institutions, and representative offices of European university alliances of which German universities are a part.
