An excellent university distinguishes itself through its variety of collaborative efforts. RWTH Aachen bundles a company's collaborative need with science through a structured collaborative model. In doing so, we are mindful of the special demands of various companies, from start ups to KMU to larger companies. We are always open to the creation of new collaboration packages that are tailored to your company's needs.

Our partners in the economy and industry profit from our core competencies in research and development, training and continuing education, and recruiting and sponsoring.

Research & Development

There are many collaborative possibilities in the area of research and development (R&D). For example, you can collaborate with one or more of our university institutes. We will gladly help you find the right contacts. Get in touch with us!

In addition to collaborative possibilities, our innovation scouts will also offer you individual consulting, within the framework of research projects, for project implementation combined with trademark rights.

Training and Continuing Education

RWTH Aachen offers a broad spectrum of diverse continuing education possibilities for you and your colleagues. You can participate in conferences at the institutes, attend subject-specific presentations on topic related questions, or participate in a course of study while working. If our current offers do not cover your needs, we will gladly create a continuing education program for your company and per request. You can contact RWTH International Academy about this service.

Recruiting & Sponsoring

RWTH graduates are among the best in their fields, and we offer many possibilities for you to establish contact with them. You can find information on the respective webpages for the topics Fundraising & Sponsoring and Recruiting.
