In this work we study the unification of heterogeneous partial specifications using category theory. We propose an alternative to institution morphisms, which we call (abstract) correspondences carrying specifications. Our methodology is illustrated using a categorical specification style inspired by the state-and-operations style of Z as well as a categorical unification procedure.
