7 days on an international campus and the successful ending of the “Bayreuth International Summer School“

Many participants coming from across the world attended the third Bayreuth International Summer School (BISS). We welcomed participants and lecturers coming from four continents and more than 14 countries, such as Brazil, South Africa and India.

The first evening will surely remain memorable to all participants and lecturers from Germany and abroad, as they bore witness to the World Cup final and the festivities following the German football team’s victory.

The following five days were devoted to intensive technical discussions of current research topics in small groups. A total of seven courses of the internationally acclaimed profile fields of the University of Bayreuth were offered in English: European and International Consumer Law, International Business and Management, Economic Growth and Development, Business Process Management, Advanced Polymers in Engineering and Energy, Health Politics and Policy in Comparative Perspective and International Trends in Sport Management.


Our international guests explored the baroque town of Bayreuth in the warm summer evenings and became acquainted with the German culture, networked and exchanged experiences in a variety of restaurants and beer gardens. These evenings in the university town of Bayreuth showed intense group cohesion amongst the participants and lecturers – “Highly enjoyable and a lot of fun!”

The Summer School concluded in a trip to a pleasant, “magical” Franconian city festival in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bamberg.

The University of Bayreuth will be providing English-speaking intensive seminars conducted by esteemed international guest scholars within the research fields to international participants during the fourth Summer School in 2015. We are already eagerly awaiting future guests coming to Bayreuth from across the world next year!



Maseno University at the University of Bayreuth

The University of Bayreuth welcomed and hosted a delegation of four Kenyan scientists from Maseno University (Vice-Chancellor of Maseno University, Prof. Dominik Makawiti, the Director of the Maseno Botanic Garden, Prof- John Inyango, a Social Development Consultant, Prof. Omondi Ahawo and the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Lake Victoria Basin Development Authority, Dr. Peter Abuko) from 30th June to 4th July 2014 at the second CREATE Workshop. CREATE (Consortium for Research in East African Tropical Ecosystems) is a joint initiative between both universities promoting the improvement of livelihoods in the Lake Victoria Basin. The workshop also resulted in strengthening the close collaboration between both partners.  

The second CREATE workshop concluded in numerous results, such as implementing long-term goals for the Lake Victoria Basin, the aim to establishing A Flagship Centre involving Maseno University, other cooperation’s and initiatives of the Lake Basin Authority. The Flagship Centre should demonstrate how to effectively implement environmental problem solving and building understanding to improve livelihoods in the Lake Victoria Basin. The participants also discussed the third CREATE Workshop scheduled for February 2015 at Maseno University. Both universities intend to extend geographically to the locations Nzoia River Basin and Ruma National Park. The hope is to integrate a broad spectrum of livelihoods by expanding to these regions, whilst keeping the interests of stakeholders locally in mind.

The current MOU between both partners was also extended during the second workshop and builds a strong foundation for the partnership and implementation of the projects.
