Closely Networked

RUB runs various national and international collaborative research projects.

In 2013, more than 115 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.
