U Bremen Research Alliance

Alliance of Excellent Research

Bremen is an outstanding location for science. Here, the University of Bremen and eleven non-university research institutes financed by the Federal Government have formed the "U Bremen Research Alliance" – manifestation of their ongoing good cooperation. The Alliance stands for cross-institutional research, with the members’ close proximity facilitating quick decision making. The essence of the alliance lies in the sharing of infrastructures, excellent service and advisory structures, tailored career paths, and swift implementation of scientific ideas. All in all, this translates into an environment with ideal conditions for creative, independent, and highly cooperative research.

A Workshop for Digital Medicine

Cornerstone for the new home of the Fraunhofer MEVIS Institute laid

The U Bremen Research Alliance Member Fraunhofer MEVIS receives a new institute building at its headquarters in Bremen. The cornerstone for the building was laid Wednesday December 5, 2018. Starting in autumn 2020, it will provide a communicative and creative working environment for the MEVIS team.  “The architecture reflects Fraunhofer MEVIS’s culture of transparency and collaboration,” says MEVIS construction representative Guido Prause. “We consider the new building a digital medicine workshop for developing and implementing software tools,” says Institute Director Horst Hahn. “It will be a meeting point for different people such as clinicians, scientists, and entrepreneurs, but also for students, pupils, and teachers to think about the future of medicine.”

With the new building, the institute is moving closer to the center of the campus - and not just geographically. The members of the alliance work closely together - MEVIS, among others, with the Department of Computer Science of the University of Bremen in "Medical Computing”.

U Bremen Research Alliance at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2018

From October 1st to October 5th 2018 more than 6,000 scientists, industry and association representatives and politicians met in Bremen to discuss the future of space travel and space research. The U Bremen Research Alliance was also represented with an exhibition stand at the accompanying exhibition with a total of 10,300 m². The aim: to inform the international guests and - on October 3rd, the Public Day as well the Bremen citizens - about the research strength of Bremen. After the fair we can draw a very positive summary. Not only industry representatives and research institutions informed themselves about the possibilities of co-operating with Bremen research institutions. The interest of many young scientists in career opportunities within the Alliance and among its members was remarkable.
