We had two German partners for this project. The University of Bremen, founded in 1971, currently has 21,000 students and 1,450 academic staff. Some of the ground-breaking educational concepts implemented in the University’s early days – which came to be known as the Bremer Modell – have since become established features of modern university education all over Germany.
The Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena was founded in 1558. It currently enrols 20,000 students in ten departments. It is one of the leading universities in East-Germany and aims at combining tradition and innovation.
