Hurdles to modernization in the science and economy of the former GDR and their consequences in the transition to the Federal Republic of Germany: This is the topic of a collaborative research group led by Professor Jutta Günther in the Faculty of Business Studies and Economics.

A coup for Jutta Günther, Professor of Economics, Innovation and Structural Economics at the University of Bremen: Her proposal for a research project that seeks to close the gaps in our knowledge about the former GDR has been approved at federal level. The German Ministry of Education and Research is funding the project with three million euro over the first four years. Jutta Günther works closely together with the Research Center for East European Studies at the University of Bremen as well as the Technical University Berlin, the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder).
