Service for researchers

With its wealth of services, RUB enables researchers to focus on their work and ensures maximum visibility for them and their projects.

Operations at RUB central administration under COVID 19 conditions

Although the RUB central administration is currently running under special conditions due to the Corona pandemic, the Research Office employees are available to answer questions via phone. Communication via video conferencing is also possible.

Consequently, application and submission services continue as usual so that RUB researchers can submit their applications.

RUB supports researchers in a number of ways with regard to project implementation and acquisition of third-party funding.

During the implementation of a project, a number of questions arise that at RUB can be addressed by reaching out to dedicated contact persons and by taking advantage of relevant RUB services.

RUB has implemented a strategy to ensure that the scientific community notices the results yielded in a project.

Regardless of the way research is funded, RUB always supports high-quality international-standard research and advocates its visibility on a global level.


The Welcome Centre supports international researchers in preparing and planning their stay in Bochum. They receive information about their research stay at RUB as well as targeted assistance with administrative procedures and formalities.
