Creating Knowledge Networks

RUB excels in cutting-edge interdisciplinary research across traditional boundaries, which is organized effectively in multidisciplinary matrix structures for collaborative research, and benefits from hosting the full spectrum of academic disciplines – the humanities and social sciences, natural sciences, engineering and medicine. Knowledge networks at the local, regional and international level highlight RUB’s distinct institutional research profile.
