transCampus Initiative

In March 2015, King’s College London appointed Professor Stefan Bornstein as transCampus Dean, the first role of its kind for King’s. The remit of this role is to drive university partnership and collaborative research initiatives between two of Europe’s leading academic institutions.

The transCampus was established as a transnational strategic partnership based on the idea of true collaboration and an intense dedication for knowledge exchange in various academic fields. Guided by shared ideas, values and a devotion to research and education, transCampus enables researchers to work together beyond the means of a traditional partnership by sharing resources, combining their strength, and promoting transnational projects and knowledge transfer.

This promising endeavour has had a gradual build-up since 2015, increasing in academic substance and administrative infrastructure, it’s unique advantage being the formation of a “Star Alliance” which aims to bring the resources, critical mass and individual strengths of each institution together to create an even larger, united and complementary academic and clinical campus. The joint efforts of two leading universities in Europe will create a partnership of scientific strength in Biomedicine, in order to bridge potential difficulties brought on by changing political scenes and allow the students and staff to compete with other leading institutions of the world. Whereas traditionally it all began in FoLSM mainly in the field of Metabolism, it has with time expanded far beyond this and includes collaborations in Psychiatry, Immunology, Engineering, Dental School, Industry, clinical practice and more.
