The SATIS project is funded by the DAAD under the lead of University Bremen in cooperation with Suez Canal University.

The project foresees an integrated triple approach of

  • satis-tripple-approachtransferring & applying a research result into an Egyptian demonstration site based on the ReviTec concept developed at University Bremen
  • using the demonstration site for the implementation of an explorative learning approach within a new international MSc study programme
  • involving students and their lecturers into ongoing research activities at the demonstration site while generating new results and future research projects
  • supporting the university management by professionalized management approach including transfer services for students and researchers, e.g. IP protection, entrepreneurship training, spinoff generation etc.

The Master Programme

  • International Master of Ecology – M.Sc – supported by the University of Bremen
  • Programme for students with a background in biology, ecology or a related subject
  • All courses to be offered in English
  • International M.Sc programme will be multidisciplinary and it contains many innovative elements such as a mentoring programme, integrated skills courses and individual research training
  • Encourage students for taking courses abroad
