Education and research

Locational Advantages

The Ruhr region delivers a density of knowledge: 40 percent of school-leavers pass their university entrance exams, while 260,000 students are attending the 22 universities in the area. Companies therefore have an excellent supply of fresh talent on tap to ensure they succeed – and youthful employees help them keep pace with the times. Research also has a high priority in the Ruhr, and thanks to a very generous budget, higher education institutes can point to outstanding progress in this field. This is another factor that can only benefit your company.
