Offers optimal working conditions and career opportunities to brilliant researchers from around the world
Promotes global visibility of excellent research associations and their corresponding focuses of research
Stimulates new impulses through collaboration with international experts
Expands and strengthens international partnerships and worldwide networks
These are the four main pillars of RE.AL, the Research Alumni Strategy of the University of Münster which were professionalised and expanded in collaboration with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation 2017/18.
Every year more than 1000 international scientists engage in research at the University of Münster. Through the Research Alumni Strategy of the International Office and the WWU Alumni Club many of them remain in contact with the university after their stay. A few of the international Research Alumni are presented in this portrait gallery and inform us about their research field and their visit to Münster.
On Saturday, 7 July 2018 Prof Daniela Bonnano from Italy und Prof Fernando Buarque de Lima Neto from Brazil were nominated as the first RE.AL Ambassadors at WWU (by Rector Prof. Johannes Wessels) during the Alumni-Day. The two internationally mobile academics from the University of Palermo and Pernambuco-Recife have been thoroughly engaged in research cooperation with WWU over the last years. In their new role they will promote the excellent research environment in Münster in their home countries and international networks, while further favouring the development of joint scientific projects and the international visibility of WWU.
Our alumni activities begin with initial contact and continue for the duration of your reseach visit in Münster. If you have any questions, please contact us first!
The Welcome Centre of the International Office supports international researchers and their hosting faculties with a broad range of information and consultation services. Our staff would be happy to help you plan and carry out each phase of your research stay in Münster.
The University of Münster is one of the German universities, which support most research collaborations with Brazil. In 2010, the University established the Brazil Centre to oversee all of its Brazil-relevant research projects and cooperations.
The staff of the Brazil Centre in Münster provides advice and assistance to all University facilities regarding research activities in Brazil, research transfer, teaching and studies. The University also operates an office in São Paolo, which serves as the central contact point for all researchers and students on location.
Europe is the place of origin and destination for most academically mobile researchers at the University of Münster. The German-Dutch border region represents a particularly important place of academic collaboration for the University.
The Centre for Europe aims to consolidate, support, justify and encourage all European-relevant activities at the University of Münster. The University also maintains its own liaison office in Brussels.
