The Alliance

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.
