The University of Bremen and twelve federal and state financed non-university research institutes cooperate within the U Bremen Research Alliance. The Alliance includes research institutes of the four major German science organizations, i.e. Fraunhofer Society, Helmholtz Association, Leibniz Association and Max Planck Society, as well as the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence.
The cooperation in the U Bremen Research Alliance extends over the four scientific High-Profile Areas “Marine, Polar and Climate Research”, “Material Sciences and Production Engineering”, “Health Sciences” and “Minds, Media, Machines” and thus literally “From deep sea to outer space".
The alliance is characterized by a synergetic and close cooperation. Due to the multilateral strategic direction and the strengthening of research cooperation, it stands for large cross-institutional research topics. Cooperative promotion of young researchers, joint personnel development programs, research infrastructures used across the board and coordinated research agendas as well as the rapid implementation of scientific ideas are forming the core of the U Bremen Research Alliance.more
