For many years now, the University of Bremen has been among the top league of German universities in the area of research. Since June 2012, the University of Bremen is entitled ‘University of Excellence’. The Excellence Initiative was passed for the first time in 2005 by the German federal and state governments. And the latest Förderatlas [funding atlas] published by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) puts Bremen right at the top among German universities in several categories.

Research conducted at the University of Bremen is interdisciplinary. In other words: Bremen research transcends the borders of traditional disciplines and is embedded within six research concentrations, also known as high-profile areas:

* Ocean and Climate Research
* Materials Science
* Information-Cognition-Communication
* Social Sciences
* Health Science
* Logistics

The University of Bremen numbers among the most successful universities in Germany with regard to acquiring external funding for research projects. In 2010 the University’s scholars and scientists acquired some 91 million euros of research funding ― almost one third of the University’s entire budget.

Founded in 1971, the University recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. Some of the ground-breaking educational concepts implemented in those early days, which became to be known as the Bremer Modell, have since become established features of modern university education all over Germany; for example interdisciplinary study and research, research-based teaching projects, orientation to practice, and responsibility towards society. These have since been augmented by new aims like internationalisation, opportunities for junior scientists and scholars in structured post-graduate programmes, gender equality, and an added sense of purpose as a "learning institution".

Among the fundamental principles distinguishing the Bremer Modell are a willingness to experiment and flexibility. The result: steadily improved positioning in the research rankings, national acclaim, and a high profile of interdisciplinary research specialisations. The outstanding quality of research is not least due to the close cooperation with the numerous research institutes which have decided to locate on the University campus. This infrastructure is attracting more and more enterprises to the adjacent Technology Park, making it one of the leading high-tech locations in Germany, hosting close to 320 companies.
