The AGS is a unique international partnership between four of the world’s leading science and technology universities:

Together the four partner institutes focus on strong research alliances with industrial and government partners and seek to expand education activities in sustainable development.

Alliance Focus Centers

Each partner university has a strong local program, called the Alliance Focus Center (AFC) – which ensures participation of faculty and staff in each AGS university. The AFCs create networks with other universities and build support through a local Advisory Board. In this way, the AGS has become a “network of networks”, bringing together the expertise of researchers from many universities across the world.
