Bridge Professorships

In order to further strengthen the cooperation between the University of Bremen and the non-university research institutes in Bremen, bridge projects were established with the concept of the University of Bremen as part of the Excellence Initiative of the Federal Government and the Länder. At the interface between university and non-university research institutes, they expand both the disciplinary perspective and the cooperation between the university and its non-university partners.

Of the five bridge professors set up within the framework of the measure, three are co-designed with partners of the Bremen Research Alliance:
