Our Research Ambassadors

Since the summer semester of 2015, 11 research alumni have been specifically selected as Research Ambassadors to represent the university around the world and promote the research work conducted here. They are spread across different departments, research areas and geographic locations.

The 11 appointed Research Ambassadors should represent the university, its strengths, and its agility abroad and be contact partners for those interested in studying or conducting research in Bremen. In addition, where possible, they should also help to establish a network of alumni and researchers from the University of Bremen in the countries where they will be doing research and teaching after their stay in Bremen. The Research Ambassadors themselves are researchers at different stages of their academic careers with strong emotional ties and excellent knowledge of the University of Bremen as well as the federal state and surrounding region.

Meet 8 of our Research Ambassadors in short videos! You can access further information here.
