They form the contextual framework for the long-term collaboration between industry and science. A construction site has been allocated to each cluster. Several buildings with the necessary research infrastructure and office space will be realized on each construction site successively.
In terms of organization, each cluster is subdivided into individual centers. The centers are located in the various cluster buildings. They form operative units. These centers will focus on specific, relevant research issues and develop visionary solution approaches. A center will therefore be the first point of contact for the involvement of potential project members from science and industry. These actors will work together and align the centers in terms of their topic areas.
State of the art cluster buildings and research under one roof will guarantee a perfect environment for innovation: That is also how research and knowledge hot spots with highly qualified experts and productive test laboratories will be created.
The campus project at RWTH Aachen University expands the traditional sphere of pure academic research to include applied research. The university will therefore be able to face the challenges of mega trends in a much larger scale.
