The university group “b-welcome” is also an independent working group of the "Save me" campaign in Konstanz. They strive to make the arrival of refugees in Germany easier and to minimise language barriers. b-welcome offers, for example, a multi-language welcome package, a translation agency and assistance in regard to meeting with government authorities. For their commitment, the initiative received the University Council Prize 2015.
