Bridge Professorships

Bridge professorships represent a new Bremen format for the professorial strengthening of cooperation. With professorships primarily based at the university, bridges and accesses between institutions and disciplines are created. At the interface between the university and non-university research institutes, they expand the cooperation between the university and its non-university partners.

Of the five bridge professorships established as part of the concept of the University of Bremen as part of the Excellence Initiative of the Federal Government and the Länder, three are co-designed with partners of the U Bremen Research Alliance:
