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 a partner in three EACEA-funded ERASMUS MUNDUS projects since 2012 and is now partner in an Erasmus+ Capacity Building project (cLINK, FUSION, gLINK and SSAPI). The IGS has hosted a PhD SummerCamp for Ethiopian PhD students from Texas Tech University, USA, twice in a row. A former doctoral candidate of IGS is a Research Ambassador of the University of Bremen in Brazil. Due to the continuous international exchange as well as the growing network of IGS graduates, IGS receives attention from all over the world.


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