RUB runs various national and international collaborative research projects.
In 2012, more than 105 million euros revenue from outside funding were acquired, a good part of it for collaborative research. Collaborative Research Centres allows scientists to work together on a subject at the highest international level in the long term and across the disciplines. In future we aim to further increase the number of collaborative research projects.
Funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG)
In 2012, the Ruhr-Universität received 32.2 million euros from the German Research Foundation (external funding). 51 % of these funds went into individual research projects, 49 % into research associations like Collaborative Research Centres, Research Units, Research Training Groups, and projects within the framework of the Excellence Initiative.
