    • The International Forum of Public Universities (IFPU) is a consortium of twenty-three public universities. The forum's permanent secretariat currently resides at the Université de Montréal in Montreal, Canada. Bringing together a limited number of universities from diverse countries, the forum was founded on October 11, 2007, with the mission of "promoting the expression of values that underlie the mission of public universities in an era of internationalization". In 2008, the consortium included 13 of the world's 200 top universities according to Times Higher Education rankings. Each year, a specialized summer school is hosted by one of its member universities.
