Hochschule Bremen is a member of the Strategic Alliance for Regional Transition (STARS EU).

The STARS EU brings together the strengths of eight traditional, complementary European universities in an ambitious attempt to re-imagine higher education institutions: the aim is to create a new kind of European University.

The overall aim is to build an alliance of committed higher education institutions to establish a future-oriented European University.  It aims to create a new generation of students and innovative, flexible and diverse educational and challenge-based research systems that contribute with high impact to the sustainable development of individual regions and the whole of Europe.
