Third-party research funding

The University has a long record of success when it comes to acquiring third-party funding. It accounts for fully one third of the University’s overall budget – and half of this comes from the DFG. Up to now, funding within the context of the Excellence Initiative had been awarded to an excellence Cluster and two graduate schools. However, this year, in the third round of the Excellence Initiative, the University managed to secure a place right at the very top of the German university league. To add to the exhilaration resulting from the success with its Institutional Strategy came the news of prolongation of funding for the Excellence Cluster in the marine sciences "The Ocean in the Earth System - MARUM" and the "Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences" (BIGSSS). more »
