"FH-Impuls" ruhrvalley

ruhrvalley is the beginning of the transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral centre of excellence for new expertise and technologies in the area of the interlinked, metropolitan mobility and energy systems of the future.

Today, in the Ruhr conurbation, new solutions are being developed for essential challenges that will reach a system-relevant quality in the middle term for our society. Their focus lies on the security, the transformation and the interconnectedness of mobility and energy production at metropolitan scales. The solution to this problem requires work across disciplines and universities. For this reason, Bochum University of Applied Sciences, Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts, and Westphalian University of Applied Sciences decided to create a research and innovation association with around forty companies from the Ruhr region and thus establish a technological innovation scene. They cooperate on joint transdisciplinary projects to develop the intelligent, interconnected mobility and energy systems of the future, especially for metropolitan regions, such as the Ruhr region.

The Ruhr region offers enormous potential for progress and technological innovations and ruhrvalley has set itself the goal of bringing together the expertise that can be found in the portfolio of young, technology-oriented, medium-sized companies present in the Ruhr region with the ample scientific know-how of the high concentration of universities in the area. In practice, the projects focus on the core areas of electromobility, intelligent energy systems and digitalisation. With the resulting business ideas and start-ups, ruhrvalley wants to contribute to the transformation of the Ruhr region into one of Europe’s most important SME and technology centres.

ruhrvalley’s added value and its especial innovation and expertise profile comes from the connection between entrepreneurial cycles and nationally visible research core areas such as electromobility, energy systems and ICT solutions. The cooperation with the automotive supplier industry, the energy systems construction industry, and the middle-sized IT sector in the Ruhr region creates potential for transdisciplinary solutions, which none of the partners could offer alone.

These cycles are selectively brought together using joint projects; for this end, ruhrvalley develops a target oriented portfolio, based on tried and tested project types, the three R&D&I types, and the management project.
