University of Bremen Conferences in November

In November, the University of Bremen is involved in the FIS Forum, a conference that will be held in a hybrid format at the University of Duisburg-Essen. The newly founded “Deutsche Institut für Interdisziplinäre Sozialpolitikforschung” (DIFIS) is the host.

The forum of the Promotion Network for Interdisciplinary Social Policy Research (FIS) will meet on Thursday, November 18 and Friday, November 19, 2021. For the first time, the “Deutsche Institut für Interdisziplinäre Sozialpolitikforschung” (German Institute for Interdisciplinary Social Policy Research) (DIFIS), which was opened by the universities in Bremen and Duisburg-Essen in April, is responsible for the annual conference. DIFIS is a joint scientific institute led by SOCIUM – Research Center on Inequality and Social Policy at the University of Bremen and the Institute for Work, Skills and Training (IAQ) at the University of Duisburg-Essen. The institute's main goals include carrying out research on social policy issues of the future and supporting transfer between science and practical fields of application. Additionally, the institute is to take on the content networking and coordination of the “Fördernetzwerk Interdisziplinäre Sozialpolitikforschung” (Promotion Network for Interdisciplinary Social Policy Research) (FIS), with which the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) supports social policy research in Germany in the fields of economics, law, history, social ethics, political science, and sociology.

The research findings of FIS-funded projects, early-career research groups, and foundation professorships are the focus of the FIS Forum. Moreover, the research needs of social policy research, as seen from the perspectives of different disciplines, will be investigated for the six future focus points of DIFIS.
