The University of the Aegean, in the frame of its internationalization policy,  supports a broad range of global activities – from individual research collaborations and scholarly visits among faculty members to larger platforms for student programs and joint research projects or laboratories.
Many of these activities can flourish without written agreements. But in some cases, a written agreement may be needed.


The following guidelines are intended to facilitate the creation of International Agreements between the University of the Aegean and academic institutions or partners that tend to fall in  two broad categories:
Memoranda of Understanding or Cooperation (MoU or MoC)-Institutional between the University of the Aegean and academic institutions or other partners (Type A) & Bilateral Agreements between Schools /Departments/Laboratories of the University of the Aegean and academic institutions (Faculties/Departments/Laboratories) or other partners (Type B)

To encourage such collaborations the following guidelines should be observed:
International partnerships often originate through informal contacts by the university faculty and staff.
The University of the Aegean provides Templates (issued in English) for every kind of agreement. In the instance that the International partner wishes to use a different template, the proposed text will undergo an evaluation by the International Relations Office and the Legal Department, of the University of the Aegean.
The International partner shall forward the proposed Memorandum of Cooperation to the associate member of the academic staff of the University of the Aegean or to the International Relations Office to initiate the agreement process. All proposed Memoranda of Cooperation and further Agreements should be routed by the proposers for review to the International Relations Office of the University of the Aegean and the Legal Department, prior to the Senate approval

On behalf of the University of the Aegean, the proposer brings the proposed agreement to the Senate, along with a report highlighting the contribution of the collaboration and with the expression of opinion of the Assembly of the Department of origin of the proposer. The Senate either approves of the agreement or requests of additional information from the proposers. An Agreement is finalized when the Rector  who has the signature authority for  all types of agreements signs two originals of the Agreement. Each institution will retain one signed original for their record. This procedure is monitored by the International Relations office.

Each agreement’s materialization shall be monitored by the Coordinators.

For questions regarding these procedures, please contact the International Relations Office at or call us at 0030 22510 36174.
