German term or phrase: An-Institut
Presumably "Angliederungsinstitut" according to the following Wikipedia definition.

Ein An-Institut ist eine Forschungseinrichtung, die aus Räumlichkeiten und den bei ihr beschäftigten Mitarbeitern besteht, und die an einer deutschen Hochschule angegliedert ist.

Context is discussion of links between business and university. Verbundstudiengänge und An-Institute sind Beispiele für die Verflechtung von Wirtschaft und Bildung.

Affiliate Institutes? - or is there a specific term for a similar set-up in English-speaking countries.

Explanation:
I can't offer a reliable translation, but I believe an "An-Institut" is an "angegliederte Institut." I found plenty of instances of "attached institute" but they were mainly from Japanese sites.

Research An-Insitut

The An-Institut, (research institute attached to the department of analytical chemistry), was established in April 2004.

Angegliedertes Institut
Im April 1950 wurde das Historiographische Institut der Universität Tokyo ausgegliedert und zu einem angegliederten Forschungsinstitut umstrukturiert.
