A major strategic investment between the universities of York and Maastricht, intended to develop a deep and lasting relationship and built around excellent research, teaching and knowledge exchange.

Our research is focused across five academic areas: Imaging, Data Science, Future of Europe, Food & Health, and Global South. Our educational programmes will also be developed drawing on these themes and expertise across both universities.
