International Graduate School for Dynamics in Logistics

The International Graduate School for Dynamics in Logistics (IGS) at the University of Bremen offers the opportunity to take part in an efficiently-structured doctoral training program. Excellent researchers from all over the world are enabled to finish their education at a logistic location of long standing tradition.
The IGS is embedded in the cross-sectional Bremen Research Cluster for Dynamics in Logistics (LogDynamics). The latter is a cooperative network of research groups from five faculties of the University of Bremen: Production Engineering, Business Studies / Economics, Mathematics / Computer Science, Physics / Electrical Engineering and, since 2019, Law. Associated partners are: BIBA – Bremer Institut für Produktion und Logistik GmbH, the Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL), and the Jacobs University Bremen gGmbH. The fields of activity of LogDynamics range from fundamental and applied research to transferring research results into practice.
IGS has been partner in three ERASMUS MUNDUS projects (cLINK, FUSION and gLINK) from 2012 to 2018. It has twice in a row hosted a PhD Summer Camp for Ethiopian PhD students from Texas Tech University, USA. Since 2021, it is one of two European partners in the Erasmus+ Capacity Building Project SSAPI. IGS is attracting growing attention through this international cooperation and the network of IGS graduates.


2021 is a year of anniversaries: 50 years of the University of Bremen, 25 years LogDynamics, and 15 years of doctoral training at the IGS. The first event will be a series of talks (in German) for all those interested in logistics. It will take place as a webinar.
Another event will be the Campus City program (in German) in October.
Prof. Dr. Aseem Kinra took over the role of IGS spokesman on May 6, 2021 from Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c.. Hans-Dietrich Haasis.
