About :in-touch

As the first institutions in Europe, the University of Bremen opened its doors for refugees in April 2014. Very soon, the other universities in Bremen joined the :in-touch program and the idea spread over Germany and other European countries. The European Comission labeled :in-touch as "Good Practice" for integration.
