Coordination council of the UA Ruhr establishes competence field

In a meeting on 1 June 2017 the coordination council of the UA Ruhr officially established “Metropolitan Research” as the first competence field of the UA Ruhr. Prior to the decision, a recommendation to that end had been made by the research council of the UA Ruhr during its meeting on 2 March 2017. A concept paper, developed by the coordinators in cooperation with several actors from the three participating universities, served as a basis for the recommendation.
