The University Alliance Ruhr bundles its top international research under the umbrella of the Research Alliance Ruhr in four Research Centres and one College for Social Sciences and Humanities.

The COLLEGE FOR SOCIAL SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES offers the humanities and social sciences thematic openness to place and integrate research topics.

In close cooperation, the members of the Scientific Board coordinate the implementation of the measures, which are intended to have the greatest possible internationally visible leverage effect for interdisciplinary research and research-oriented teaching for the participating disciplines and departments.

In addition to the College, four RESEARCH CENTERS of the Research Alliance Ruhr address the topics of health, sustainability, digitalisation and energy as follows:
