Introducing RSM, our new corporate member

We are pleased to welcome a new corporate member into our alumni association: the auditing and tax consulting firm RSM. A very warm welcome indeed! Why is RSM coming on board?

"RSM is joining the University of Bremen Alumni Association to expand our already close ties with the university into networks with students, graduates, academic professionals and other supporting members. As one of the leading medium-sized auditing and tax consulting firms in Bremen, we offer internships to students and hire several graduates from the university every year. In future, we will also strive for deeper cooperation in our research and development work."

Holger Genenger (Partner, German Public Auditor, Tax Advisor)

India Chapter Founding and First Conference

At a 13 July 2021 online meeting, more than a dozen University of Bremen alumni founded the India chapter of our association. The chapter’s first event, planned for 12 November, is an online conference on sustainability, covering issues such as mobility and the use of hydrogen to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The chair of the new chapter is nanoscientist Dr. Amretashis Sengupta, who did postdoctoral research at the Bremen Center for Computational Materials Science (BCCMS). His deputy is Dr. Madhura Panse, who did her master’s degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Bremen. Rounding out the chapter’s leadership is Karthikeyan Sreetharan, an engineer who studied for his master's degree at the University of Bremen.

Regional Group Meeting in Frankfurt a Big Hit

Eight Bremen alumni met for a second time in Frankfurt on March 19 only six weeks after the first meeting there. Together they came together in a small kitchen that is under a preservation order although it is used in everyday operations. The event helped to build bridges between the generation of recent graduates and those pursuing a doctorate in Frankfurt and Wolf Gunter Brügmann, a true institution at the University of Bremen.
