Federal Cross of Merit for alumna Renate Heitmann

The managing director of the bremer shakespeare company will be awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany on 1 October. Renate Heitmann studied Cultural Studies and English/American Studies at the University of Bremen and is a board member of the Alumni Association. The citation by Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier states: "If you do nothing, there is nothing to do", with this motto she defied the Corona pandemic in the middle of the summer of 2020. She initiated the "Bremer KulturSommer Summarum" with 300 events at more than 30 locations in Bremen and the surrounding area - an impressive example of lived solidarity in the cultural scene."

Dr. Annette Lang was head of the International Office at the University of Bremen for more than ten years. A time, in which the university’s international contacts expanded considerably. YUFE (Young Universities for the Future of Europe) is one of the project highlights that Annette Lang helped initiate with her unfailing dedication. Annette Lang has always been a reliable and resourceful contact for the alumni association. From March 2021, she will head the international relations department at the Senate Chancellery of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. We wish her all the best and hope for further excellent cooperation.
