UA Ruhr Liaison Offices

Establish contacts, maintain relationships, and initiate cooperation agreements


UARuhr_Logo 2014

The University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr) is an alliance between Ruhr University Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen, the three strongest universities in Germany’s thriving Ruhr Area. The three UA Ruhr liaison offices carry out the message of the strength of the Ruhr Area as a research and study location into the world. To support and intensify the international exchange and collaboration, the UA Ruhr created UA Ruhr liaison offices for North America, Latin America, and Russia. Within a short period of time these offices have initiated many exchange and scholarship programs, as well as research agreements, and therefore provide a valuable contribution to the international orientation of the Ruhr Area.
