Research

Push the frontiers of knowledge through research

Constructor University’s three Schools convene scientists across a broad range of disciplines. Our research is characterized by multi- and interdisciplinarity that is as well the heart of our educational concept. Our faculty and research staff thrives to tackle global challenges and important societal developments by using the most recent digital technologies. Our on-campus research capabilities are enhanced through our network of global collaborators in academia and industry as well as the Constructor Group environment.

As a small residential university we take pride in the early involvement of our students in state-of-the-art pure and applied research and benefit strongly from the international and intercultural perspectives our student body brings into our research teams.

Research at Constructor University: Predicting decisions with mathematical models
Scientists assume that we make up to 20,000 decisions per day. But how do they come about and can they be predicted with the help of mathematical models? This is the goal of a joint research project by psychologist Professor Adele Diederich and mathematician Dr. Keivan Mallahi-Karai at Constructor University in Bremen. The project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) with a total of around 340,000 euros.
