Alliance with Maastricht University (Netherlands)

In 2007, the University of Vermont and Maastricht University signed an affiliation agreement, marking a formal arrangement to the Netherlands-based institution and UVM's previous ten-year collaboration. Maastricht's research and clinical care focus on cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic diseases and neuroscience overlaps UVM College of Medicine's and The University of Vermont Medical Center's areas of excellence. In September of 2015 Maastricht University and UVM reaffirmed their formal more.

As affiliates, the two institutions established a graduate student exchange program and collaborate in lung, cardiovascular, and proteomics research.
