ANU engages with two international alliance partners:
The Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) is a consortium of 42 leading research universities in the Pacific Rim. The consortium aims to foster cooperation in education, research and enterprise, thereby contributing to the economic, scientific and cultural advancement of the Pacific Rim.
APRU aims to promote scientific, educational and cultural collaboration among Pacific Rim economies. In both its objectives and guiding principles, APRU embodies a commitment to global academic and research standards.
APRU recognises that its activities can be powerful catalysts for expanding educational, economic and technological cooperation among Pacific Rim economies. The association seeks to promote dialogue and collaboration between academic institutions in the Pacific Rim so that they can become effective players in today's global knowledge economy.
The International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) is a collaboration of ten of the world's leading research-intensive universities that share a similar vision and have a commitment to educating future leaders.
