"Broadening Perspectives": 2018/2019 Edition

Transfer plays a significant role at the University of Bremen – but what does the term “transfer” mean exactly? The university sees transfer as a cooperative process between society, businesses, administration, and academia. Researching together, learning from each other, discussing as equals, and taking on responsibility for society are important aspects of this process. For our yearbook theme, we will introduce you to people from different disciplines who embody our idea of transfer. They are just a small sample of many employees of this university who are dedicated to dialogue on a day-to-day basis.
