Università degli studi di Padova

A survey of the international collaborations of UNIL academics launched in 2020 showed that the University of Padua ranks among the most important partners of UNIL, with more that 40 ongoing research collaborations at the time.

Both parties being interested in developping further the cooperation, a privileged partnership agreement was signed in 2021 to support current collaborations and foster the development of new projects.
