The strategic partnership between the University of Geneva and Yonsei University was signed in 2013 for reinforcing academic links, including teaching, research and other joint initiatives. The two institutions have been collaborating and exchanging students regularly since 2007. The main tool of the strategic partnership is the UNIGE-Yonsei Joint Seed Funding Scheme aimed at promoting joint initiatives and collaborative activities. The call for projects runs annually on a competitive basis. Some 11 projects have been funded so far.
