Research Buildings

With its research buildings, Ruhr University is one of the leading lights in North Rhine-Westphalia. The buildings provide optimal infrastructure for research. The ZEMOS research building houses the Center for Solvation Science on the campus. The ProDi research building is located near the Gesundheitscampus entrance and will be housing protein diagnostics. The Federal Government and the State of NRW are funding additional research buildings, namely ZGH, ZESS and THINK.

Good to Know

Research buildings are designed to improve the infrastructural conditions at higher education institutions in Germany. These institutions can thus boost their ranking on the national and international level. Eligible for funding are buildings at higher-education institutions with investment costs in excess 5 million euros the infrastructure of which is primarily used for research purposes.

The funds are disbursed by the Federal Government and the federal states in equal shares. Competing with other institutions for the establishment of such research infrastructure of national significance, Ruhr University has acquired funds amounting to approximately 250 million euros to date.
