ruhrvalley

isn't just a place, it's a state of mind

ruhrvalley is a place where vision, expertise and creativity meet responsibility and engagement. It is a space and an incentive for all who combine their competences across sector and discipline boundaries. Together, they work on:

  • Research topics in universities;
  • entrepreneurial topics in the economy;
  • socio-political topics in cities and municipalities;
  • other transfer related topics,

in such a way as to exploit the synergy effects between these areas and avoid working on them in parallel.

As in a living organism, which survives because of the different functions and contributions of its sub-systems, the diversity of the partners in ruhrvalley is not just desirable, but actually the key factor of the network’s competence.
