Research Alliance Ruhr

Top international research on pressing issues of the future - this is what the University Alliance Ruhr has been working on in four research centres and one college since 2021. The initiative of the Ruhr Conference is a testament to the Ruhr area’s transformation into a vibrant metropolis of knowledge. Unprecedented career opportunities are unfolding here and now for excellent scientists and scholars from all over the world.

Since 2021, the University Alliance Ruhr has been expanding its cutting-edge, international research on pressing issues facing the future under the umbrella of the Research Alliance.

Four research centers and one college were founded for this purpose:


The interdisciplinary research areas have been chosen based on the very strengths of the participating universities. The research centers are addressing major issues of our time, such as health, sustainability, digitalization and energy while the college’s main goal is to allow international networking and raise visibility in the field of humanities and social sciences.

The Research Alliance Ruhr has been facilitated by the Ruhr Conference, an initiative of North Rhine-Westphalia, and is a testament to the Ruhr area’s transformation into a vibrant metropolis of knowledge and it’s promising future.

The four research centers and the college are under the umbrella of the Research Alliance part of the University Alliance Ruhr. In the UA Ruhr, formed in 2007, the three universities of the Ruhr area have joined forces under the slogan “better together”. Already in its first year of operation the Research Alliance Ruhr attracted high-ranking scholars, such as a prestigious Humboldt professorship, with more than 25 appointments of professors in the pipeline. In perspective, up to 50 new research professorships will be established in the upcoming years.
