The EAU maintains close relations with national urological organisations in and outside Europe. Together with these associations, the EAU organises the International Academic Exchange Programmes.

The International Academic Exchange Programmes aim to serve young academic urologists through sharing of knowledge and experiences. The programmes promote the exchange of urological skills and expertise, and provide outstanding or promising junior faculty members the chance to interact with colleagues in other countries.

Aside from fostering closer alliances with urological communities, the programme also helps identify future leaders in European urology.
