A Multi-Field Endeavor
Building on the existing bilateral actions of cooperation among its members,
such as student and faculty exchange programs, joint and dual degrees, the
Alliance Program endeavors to develop new initiatives.
Alliance’s challenge is to develop joint research projects on issues that
are relevant to its main thematic orientation. These initiatives may involve
other American and European partner universities on a case-by-case basis.
It is Alliance's constant preoccupation to improve the transatlantic public
policy dialogue with key issues of our time. The Alliance Program endeavors
to open a space for discussion between private sector executives, public policy-makers
and academics. Alliance builds on the diversity of its partners and on their
intrinsic plurality to promote durable cooperation across disciplines, from
hard to social sciences.
