Research at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences
As a young and innovative university, Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences focuses on application oriented and interdisciplinary research, not only because many professors have worked in the private sector. The University of Applied Sciences sees itself as a research partner for companies from the region, as well as Germany and other countries. This way, the region benefits directly from its research and the regional innovation capacity is promoted. The researchers of the faculties Technology and Bionics, Life Sciences, Society and Economics and Communication and Environment align their research activities to these requirements and cooperate with various partners.
Research and Third-Party Funded Projects
The Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences applies successfully for research funding and takes part in a growing number of national and international projects. Here you will find an overview of the research and third party funded projects at the university.
Centre for Research, Innovation and Transfer
The Centre for Research, Innovation and Transfer of Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences offers information and support on all aspects of research funding as well as knowledge and technology transfer:
We encourage researchers to contact us for advice and assistance pertaining to research funding, transfer and innovation management, funding opportunities, third-party fundraising and support research grant proposals.
As an innovative and entrepreneurial university, a close cooperation and interaction with industry and business is essential to Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences. The Centre for Research, Innovation and Transfer is the central point of contact for regional and supra-regional companies.
The Centre for Research, Innovation and Transfer also raises funds and coordinates projects. For example, the Centre for Research, Innovation and Transfer is currently participating in the INTERREG IV A-Project "Wissensallianz Rhein-Waal 2020". In the project "Regionality in the Lower Rhine Region– Market Research in Awareness of Regionality and Potential Analysis" which is funded by the Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Agriculture, Nature Conservation and Consumer Protection of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Centre for Research, Innovation and Transfer analyses the awareness for regionality as well as supply and demand of regional products. Furthermore, the Centre for Research, Innovation and Transfer plans to further extend its application-oriented research, particularly in the natural sciences and engineering. In 2012, a zdi-Centre for the district of Kleve was established at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences. The joint initiative “Zukunft durch Innovation.NRW” (zdi) of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia aims to create interest of children in engineering, natural sciences as well as technical professions.
