Partners from Research & Economy
The campus of RWTH Aachen University is one of the largest technology-oriented research landscapes in Europe with a size of 800,000 m², offering a potpourri of partners with the excellence clusters biomedical engineering, sustainable energy, photonics, production engineering, heavy duty drives and smart logistics. Here, more than 280 companies are involved in order to exploit synergy effects and to create in partnership sustainable innovations. The e.GO, the second electric car manufacturer that emerged from this cluster after the StreetScooter, was also created in this creative environment. This and many other examples show which development processes and potentials can be realized by Industry 4.0.
RWTH Aachen University, with its more than 260 institutes, is one of the leading science and research institutions in Europe, and with currently more than 45,000 students, is one of the largest universities for technical courses in Germany. The university of excellence has long stood for an internationally perceived hotspot where innovative answers to global challenges are developed.
In recent years in particular, RWTH Aachen University has been able to further sharpen its profile by strengthening the natural sciences and promoting interdisciplinary research, thus developing into an integrated interdisciplinary technical university. Its manifold impulses are already having an impact on the Aachen city region and the border triangle of Germany / Belgium / the Netherlands: Here, an innovative knowledge community is emerging that is connected with leading global research and industrial partners. Regardless of the focus, RWTH Aachen University always strives in finding the right people within its own ranks and bringing them together in such a way that new research can lead to success.
