Cooperations

From 2013 to 2018 The International Graduate School for Dynamics in Logistics (IGS) of the research cluster LogDynamics was a partner in three EU funded Erasmus Mundus mobility projects: cLINK, FUSION and gLINK. The fruitful co-operation generated some sustainable bi-lateral contracts:
 
1. Since 2015 Memorandum of Understanding with the Zhongyuan University of Technology, Zhengzhou, China. The written agreement was filled with life through numerous collaborations. An intensive exchange of lecturers and researchers took place, primarily in the direction of Bremen, but also vice versa. Prof. Dr. Hans-Dietrich Haasis, spokesman for the IGS, has been rewarded "Distinguished Professor" and "Foreign Director of the International Joint Research Center for Logistics Management and Engineering" Awards at ZUT in 2018. The certificate was granted to him on March 22, 2018 during a solemn event in China.
 
 
2. Since 2016 Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka
 
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was initiated on 16th of December 2016 in Sri Lanka by Prof. Dr. Hans-Dietrich Haasis. On behalf of LogDynamics and the International Graduate School for Dynamics in Logistics Prof. Haasis signed a MoU with Prof. Upul B. Dissanayake, the Vice Chancellor of University of Peradeniya at the Senate building in University of Peradeniya. The MoU will open up the opportunity for collaborative research as well as exchange of students, researchers and staff between the two institutes in the areas of logistics and industrial engineering. The cooperation results for the Erasmus Mundus gLINK mobility of Dr. Asela Kulatunga.
 
 
3. Since 2017 Memorandum of Understanding with the Capital University of Science and Technology (CUST), Islamabad, Pakistan
 
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)  will open up the opportunity for collaborative research and conferences as well as exchange of students, researchers and staff between the two institutes in the areas of logistics and industrial engineering. The cooperation results from the Erasmus Mundus projects cLINK and FUSION and from a number of mobilities in both directions.
 
 
4. Since 2018 inter-institutional agreement between program countries with the University of Évora, Portugal.
 
The University of Évora and University of Bremen agreed on a bilateral Erasmus+ exchange. From now on, mobilities of students and staff members of the different faculties of LogDynamics and the according counterparts in Évora will be possible. The cooperation results from the fruitful networking in the course of the international exchange within the Erasmus Mundus projects FUSION and gLINK.
 
 
5. Since 2018 Memorandum of Understanding with Universidad Arturo Prat, Iquique, Chile
 
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Bremen Research Cluster for Dynamcis in Logistics (LogDynamics) at the University of Bremen and the Universidad Arturo Prat (UNAP) enables joint research and conferences as well as the exchange of students and researchers in the field of logistics and industrial engineering. The cooperation results from the continuous cooperation that began 2008 with the application of a UNAP lecturer for admission to the International Graduate School for Dynamics in Logistics (IGS).
 
 
6. Since 2018 Memorandum of Understanding with Chiang Mai University, Thailand
 
The IGS and the College of Arts, Media and Technology (CAMT) of Chiang Mai University (CMU) started their cooperation in 2013 by applying for the funding of the Erasmus Mundus mobility project cLINK. It resulted in a further exchange of students and scientists, supported by the Erasmus Mundus project FUSION. At the end of 2017, a university-wide interest in continuing the cooperation beyond the projects and the departments involved became apparent. Both universities have many things in common, for example the interest in expanding internationalisation as well as the focus on research and the integration of research into teaching. The CMU is particularly interested in the specific curriculum of the IGS regarding soft skill training. In October 2018, therefore, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed that is valid for all faculties of both universities.
 
7. Since 2019 Memorandum of Understanding with Texas Tech University, USA
 
The Texas Tech University (TTU), Lubbock, USA, and the IGS of the University of Bremen started a cooperation in 2017. The IGS hosted twice a group of doctoral candidates from Ethiopia for an international experience in the TTU PhD SummerCamp. Prof. Stephen Ekwaro-Osire was the initiator and project coordinator from TTU. In January 2019 a MoU was signed that covers collaboration opportunities with the following departments: electrical and computer engineering, physics, computer science, mathematics and statistics, mechanical engineering, and industrial systems, and manufacturing engineering as well as with the College of Education.
