In this way, international scholars can be recruited for work at the institute and strengthen the internationally-oriented research work.

A cooperation agreement in teaching and research between the Institute of Philosophy of Leipzig University and the University of Chicago was concluded most recently in 2021, in which an exchange of master's and doctoral students of philosophy is offered for 1-2 semesters for Leipzig students and for students of the University of Chicago. The agreement supports e.g. a semester abroad in Chicago, as no tuition fees are charged. The cooperation promotes internationalization and networking. The main coordinators of this cooperation are Prof. James Conant (Chicago/Leipzig) and Prof. Andrea Kern (Leipzig).
