As a mid-sized University with 330 professorships (50 of these in cooperation) and some 20,000 students, the University of Bremen hosts a broad range of subjects and outstanding internationally renowned research.
The Institutional Strategy “Ambitious and Agile” is a strategy for the development of the whole University. The strategy's nine measures have been designed to enable the University to pursue its guiding principles and to strengthen the University as a whole.
The underlying idea is:
- to reinforce networking and strategic coordination between the high-profile areas and non-university research partners (strengthening the high-profile areas),
- to support new research ideas and creative groups in all subjects with suitable offers of funding (support for new ideas),
- to provide innovative young researchers and female researchers with attractive career opportunities (promoting talent).
Since the start of the Institutional Strategy in 2012, the University has funded numerous projects. It thereby established a top position in the international research arena and developed the University's innovation capacity.
For the University of Bremen, research strength entails interdisciplinarity, international cooperation, equal opportunity and research-based teaching
