The University of Bremen is among the top 50 European research universities less than 50 years old and is an inspiring center of education – diverse, cooperative and not afraid to experiment. It is a young, mid-sized comprehensive university. Its profile is particularly marked by its six high-profile research areas: Marine, Polar and Climate Research; Social Change, Social Policy and the State; Materials Science and their Technologies; Minds, Media, Machines; Logistics and Health Sciences. These areas have a total of seven Collaborative Research Centers, as well as the DFG Cluster of Excellence “The Ocean in the System Earth”, the BIGSSS Graduate School, and several Research Training Groups.
At the University of Bremen research takes place in twelve faculties with their working groups and research institutes, the MARUM Research Faculty and is explicitly interdisciplinary with limited-term research units that are not part of the faculties. Cooperation in Bremen is a top priority: Together with the U Bremen Research Alliance and the local research institutes, Bremen research academics work on solutions to the major societal challenges of our time.
