Collaborate with research alums and extend your network

The Tübingen Research Alumni Centre (TRACe) brings local researchers and Tübingen research alums together to discuss ideas, network, and develop collaborative research projects. TRACe is committed to expanding the University’s worldwide research network to facilitate cutting-edge research and tackle global issues.


TRACe maintains close ties to the University’s research alums community and can draw upon an extensive network of researchers from a multifold of subjects. If you are looking for a contact at a specific institution or in a specific region, TRACe can help you get in touch. For more information, please send an email to tracespam prevention@uni-tuebingen.de
