Research Alumni Network

MaRA – Mannheim Research Alumni

As the University of Mannheim would like to keep in contact with former international scholars and visiting researchers even beyond their stay in Mannheim, in May 2014, the Welcome Center of the University of Mannheim in cooperation with the International Office, the Graduate School of Economics and Social Sciences GESS and the President's Office established a network of research alumni of the University of Mannheim: MaRA – Mannheim Research Alumni. In 2014, the network was honored by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in the competition "Research Alumni Strategies.
