In 2015, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, together with the Federal Foreign Office, launched the Philipp Schwartz Initiative. With the help of this program, scientists and scholars who can no longer work in their home countries because they are threatened or persecuted can continue their work at German universities, scientific institutions and non-university research facilities.

Applications and funding are not possible without a mentor!

Nominations for the Philipp Schwartz Initiative (PSI) are made via the International Office, which submits the application for the University of Bremen to the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
The contact person for researchers at risk and mentors is Kirsten Beta.

We are looking forward to welcoming new researchers at the University of Bremen.
