NanoCompetence - an interdisciplinary graduate school 

NanoCompetence is a graduate school at the Centre for Environmental Research and Sustainable Technology (UFT) and has started in 2015. Seven groups of the University Bremen are the participants of the graduate school. 

They form an interdisciplinary team of natural, social and applied scientists who are working in  groups with a close connection between natural and social scientist partners, respectively. 

The scholarships of NanoCompetence are funded by the Hans-Böckler-Foundation (German Labor Unions). Furthermore the graduate school is substantially supported by the VCI (Association of the Chemical Industry), the “Senatorin für Wissenschaft, Gesundheit und Verbraucherschutz” (Senator for Science, Health and Consumer Protection) in Bremen and the University of Bremen.

Information about the topics of the scholarships is provided by the proposal for the graduate school
