Bremen is an outstanding location for science. Here, the university of Bremen as well as eleven insitutes by non-university research facilities financed by the Federal Government and further insitutes financed by the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen form a centre for excellent Science. The U Bremen Research Alliance, founded in April 2016 by the University of Bremen and the eleven research institutions supported by the Federal Government, is the expression and demand for the existing good cooperation and its expansion. It is characterized by an even closer cooperation with short paths and stands for large, research-intensive research projects across institutions. The core of the "U Bremen Research Alliance" is the joint use of infrastructures, excellent service and consulting structures, tailor-made career paths and the rapid implementation of scientific ideas. In this way, an environment with the best working conditions can be offered to the scientists in order to be creative, free and highly cooperative.
