The Bio-Medical Campus of the University of Rome has developed a network of international scientific and educational relations in order to promote the mobility of students, teachers, and staff to European and non-European universities as well as companies. 

The IRO (International Relations Office) provides information on mobility opportunities abroad and correspondent administrative support for interested candidates.
