Partner Identification Services

In response to the increased interest in global institutional collaboration, QS Intelligence Unit is pleased to offer

Partner Identification Services. This will provide a solid foundation for establishing partnerships with competitive

institutions worldwide, by providing recommendations tailored to the client’s own strategy in a particular region.

The service can identify universities for research collaboration, mobility congruence, and institutional partnerships.

This bespoke project will start by identifying potential partnership opportunities in a targeted region, according

to general and specific prerequisites established with the client. Further to selecting the appropriate partner

institutions in the region, the project will provide key contacts in the selected universities and will offer commercial

opportunities for the client to widen its presence in a strategic region.






Module 1- US$ 5,000

This module offers the option to choose a set of criteria, primary and secondary, that

are of most interest, when identifying partner universities. Based on results in these

criteria, up to ten specific partner institutions will be identified.

Primary criteria for selecting partner institutions include: country, university size,

research intensity and focus (faculties and presence of a medical school). Our extensive

research data is able to match university partners through paper intensity, research

focus, subject area specification, and citation levels.

collected for the QS World University Rankings ® , QS University Rankings: Asia, QS

University Rankings: Latin America, and QS World University Rankings by Subject.
