The University of Bremen (UniHB), Germany, has been founded in 1971 and is a research-based university. It published its first internationalization strategy in 2011 and is expanding its international cooperation permanently on the level of exchange of students, researchers and lecturers as well as by the early founding of the International Graduate School for Dynamics in Logistics (IGS) as interdisciplinary doctoral training groupof the Bremen Reasearch Cluster of Dynamics in Logistics (LogDynamics). LogDynamics is a cooperation network of research groups from six Faculties of UniHB: Production Engineering (FB4), Business Studies / Economics (FB7), Mathematics / Computer Sciences (FB3), Physics / Electrical Engineering (FB1) and Law (FB6). Associated, independent partners are: BIBA – Bremer Institut für Produktion und Logistik GmbH, the Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL) and the Jacobs University Bremen gGmbH, one of the few private universities in Germany. The professors of LogDynamics are teaching Bachelor and Master programs as well as supervising doctoral candidates and conduction research.
In Europe the possibility for students to study abroad has been recognized as an essential element of European integration. The Bologna Process aimed at “harmonizing the architecture of the European Higher Education system” by making academic degree standards and quality assurance standards more comparable and compatible even if the member states have diverse systems. That is valid for the integration with international systems as well. Aim of LogDynamics in SSAPI is to make the exchange more fluent by transfering European educational characteristics to emerging, non-EU countries.
