You’re welcome to bring
someone with you
We’ll be happy to help you find solutions to reconcile work and family when you come to Bremen. If you want, our “Dual Career Welcome Service” will help your partner find suitable employment in the U Bremen Research Alliance or elsewhere. Moreover, childcare in the Alliance is generously provided for the whole year over. There is the nursery school “Uni-Kita” for infants in the age group one to three. “Entdecker-Kids” (discovery kids) caters for all children between six months and school age. And then there is the “Entdeckerhaus” (House of discovery), which is divided into two kindergarten groups and four nursery school groups. These units are backed up by an emergency childcare facility within the Alliance. We can even provide childcare during vacation time. In addition to this, you can of course take advantage of services the towns of Bremen and Bremerhaven offer newcomers to the region.
“Riding the waves”
Reefs break the momentum of monster waves. Are they also able to protect islands under conditions of climate change? Dr. Alessio Rovere is a specialist for changes in sea-level. In 2015, the Italian-born researcher spent a month on the South Sea Island of Mo'orea studying wave dynamics. Rovere leads the Bridge Research Group “Sea Level and Coastal Changes”, which spans the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) and the MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences at the University of Bremen. The cooperation gives him the opportunity to do research in both institutes, sharing their resources and creating synergies.
