Information for newly appointed professors

Service for newly appointed professors

The University of Bremen offers special introductory courses for newly appointed professors to facilitate their start in Bremen. Traditionally, all newly appointed professors are introduced officially at the Annual New Year's reception in the historical town hall.

In the spring and in the fall the rectorate invites all newly appointed professors to an information session to exchange experiences about their start in Bremen. The Central Research Development Fund and the Human Resources Development present their portfolio at these events. Newly appointed professors can use all the University of Bremen’s service facilities from the outset.
