Transformation of the Lower Rhine Region
Innovation, sustainability, participation
"The purest form of insanity is to leave everything as it is and at the same time, hope that something will change." - Albert Einstein
The "Innovative Hochschule" funding initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports universities in transforming research findings into even more efficient creative solutions to the pressing challenges of our time.
Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences (HSRW) and its project "TransRegINT: Transformation of the Lower Rhine Region - Innovation, Sustainability, Participation" will receive nearly 10 million euros in funding from January 2023 until the end of 2027 as part of this funding initiative.
... A reorientation of transfer with the goal of transformative impact in the region and beyond. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are central as the overarching goals that guide HSRW. The university assumes responsibility as a transformation catalyst in the region and beyond by networking, leading the way and imparting skills. To this end, it commits all of its resources (students, researchers, university administration and partners) as a knowledge institution to the challenges posed by sustainability issues.
TransRegINT aims to...
... make the region, but also the students who carry their knowledge into the world, ready for the future. To achieve these goals, the project is divided into sub-projects that are interconnected across the board and generate synergies for the transformative transfer.
TransRegINT is targeted at...
... Companies, political and social groups as well as citizens, with whom a variety of cooperations are planned in order to shape transformation. In addition, students and employees of the HSRW are also addressed.
