Aiming to promote worldwide the University of Bremen and the research work it does, ten research alumni have been appointed Research Ambassadors since the summer of 2015. Their task is to represent and promote the University abroad by acting as a liaison between the University and any prospective students and researchers. In addition to this, they help build regional networks of former students and ambassadors of University of Bremen in countries where they currently conduct teaching and research activities.
The seven Research Ambassadors are Prof. Dr. Don Bruce, Dr. Alejandra Castro-Carranza, Prof. Krishnendu Chakrabarty, Prof. Enzo Morosini Frazzon, Prof. Kolyang, Prof. Yanbing Mao, Prof. Dr. Rozena Maart, Prof. Dr. Alex Boniface Makulilo, Prof. Frank Wilderson and Dr. Natascha Zaun. They are associated with faculties 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 10, and have their home universities in Brazil, Canada, Cameroon, China, Great Britain, Mexico, South Africa, Tansania and the USA.
