Mission: Shaping the future with our strengths: The University of Bremen is an excellent research university and an attractive location for outstanding scholars and scientists at all career levels. Advancing existing academic fields and carving out new lines of research, it encourages out of the box thinking and closely links teaching with its research activities. The University embodies the principle of interdisciplinary cooperation in education and research. It acknowledges its wider responsibility for the development of society as a whole. The teachers at the University are deeply committed to their students; they engage in dialogue with them on teaching and learning and are constantly striving to improve the didactical concepts. Developing the next generation’s potential: Research-based learning and attractive undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, together with a culture of critical thinking and open dialogue, creates excellent career prospects for graduates of the University. Equipped to assume responsible positions in the international labour market, our graduates have learned to think and act in awareness of their social responsibility and the principle of sustainability. To enable them to succeed, the University of Bremen provides its graduates with the requisite skill sets and qualifications – at the highest levels in their individual disciplines as well as beyond subject boundaries, with an orientation to practice and intercultural competencies. At the University of Bremen, students with diverse educational backgrounds can discover their potential and develop their individual talents. They benefit from flexible study formats that can be customised to fit individual needs. We reach out to students and academics of all backgrounds and from all over the world, attracting them with our open-minded and distinctly welcoming culture and our inspiring working environment. Early-career researchers receive strong support and encouragement in Bremen, along with exemplary support for independent research. The University of Bremen is committed to a participatory, communicative culture and offers students and employees excellent opportunities for personal development. Taking joint responsibility with partners: As a public university, the University of Bremen is mindful of its responsibility towards the Federal State of Bremen and the part it has to play in fostering its development as a science hub. Accordingly, it plays an active role in social debates and contributes significantly to cultural, political and economic life. University education, research, innovation and public engagement contribute significantly to the development of the whole region. Broadening its impact, the University seeks collaboration and partnerships with the non-university research institutes in the Federal State of Bremen and neighbouring higher education institutions in Northern Germany. The sharing of resources across the University and with our partner institutes gives rise to synergies. The University cooperates with selected scientific institutions as strategic partners at national and international level. Cooperation is one of our keys to success.
Vision: The University of Bremen is a leading European research university and an inspirational place of education – it is diverse, socially responsible, cooperative, and creative.
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.
We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
