General Information

The Bremen Research Cluster for Dynamics in Logistics (LogDynamics) was member of several ERASMUS MUNDUS projects. The goal of LogDynamics is to strengthen the field of logistics by interdisciplinary research in international consortia and by offering doctoral education within this field of research. LogDynamics itself is a cooperative network of research groups which includes five faculties of the University of Bremen:
• Business Studies/Economics
• Production Engineering
• Mathematics/Computer Science
• Physics/ Electrical Engineering
• Law
Associated partners are the BIBA – Bremer Institut für Produktion und Logistik GmbH, the Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL), and the Jacobs University Bremen GmbH.

The International Graduate School for Dynamics in Logistics (IGS) is the structured doctoral training program of LogDynamics. It started in 2005. The working language is English. The IGS meets the challenges of globalization through practice oriented research within a scope of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural cooperation. Its objective is to foster excellence in education and research by providing an optimal environment.

Welcome for an ERASMUS MUNDUS mobility from Asia to LogDynamics at the University of Bremen were students and researchers who are interested in research according to the field "Dynamics in Logistics". Due to the fact that the University of Bremen only offers a few study programs in English, LogDynamics offered any applicant an individual research project, in English, and to work under individual supervision. Fellows will be integrated into the IGS and into the working group of her/his supervisor. One or two doctoral candidates of the IGS or of LogDynamics are going to serve as supervisors (under the guidance of her/his PhD supervisor) for any Bachelor or Master student. In Germany PhDs, PostDocs and TTs are seen as independent researchers.

At the moment the IGS is part of the project SSAPI – Strategic Support for Accreditation of Programs and Internationalization at South Asian Higher Education Institutes (HEIs). SSAPI is an Erasmus+ Capacity Building (CBHE) project funded by the European Union. It started in January 2021 with a duration of three years. The aim of the CBHE is to create learning and practicing opportunities for partner country HEIs’ staff including administrative staff, faculty, students and researchers. Trainings will focus on learning from EU partners, and developing procedures to modernize the local education systems. This project will contribute effectively in creating reforms in the overall higher education system of the partner universities.
