Benjamin List

The chemical scientist has been awarded the Nobel Prize for his groundbreaking contribution to catalyst research. RUB and the RESOLV Cluster extend their heartfelt congratulations on this award!

Research focus areas

The established research focus areas at RUB are organised using Research Departments and lie in Solvation Science, Cyber Security, Neuroscience, Materials Research, Plasmas with Complex Interactions, Religious Studies, Protein Science, Subsurface Modeling and Engineering, and Closed Carbon Cycle Economy.

Research Departments

Most chemical reactions, important industrial processes, and almost all biological processes take place in the liquid phase. In the Cluster of Excellence RESOLV, scientists work in the field of solvation science.

IT security has become a central societal issue since networked devices have permeated our world. This is what the Cluster of Excellence CASA is concerned with.

Promoting young researchers is of key importance at Ruhr University Bochum.

RUB unites research expertise under one roof that spans the full breadth and width of disciplines and is pretty much unparalleled in Germany. This is reflected in our Collaborative Research Centres.

With its research buildings, RUB is one of the leading lights in North Rhine-Westphalia. The buildings provide optimal infrastructure for research.
