ABBt as a partner

The close collaboration between industry and RWTH Aachen has existed since the university was founded in the 19th century.  The industry significantly financially supported RWTH Aachen in its development phase.  One of its goals was to support the education of engineers for mining in North Rhine-Westphalia.  As a result, distinct collaborative efforts with the industry were established at RWTH Aachen, which we continuously develop with the future in mind.

The Aachen Biology and Biotechnology department strives for the synchronization of scientific and industrial innovation processes, in order to shorten the innovation cycle. Within the different institutes, a significant emphasis is placed on applied research, built from a strong basis of fundamental science.

RWTH Aachen is a strong partner for the development of the technologies of tomorrow.  Accordingly, our industry partners are well known for staying ahead of others and for remaining internationally competitive in the long run, through the help of our advanced innovation efforts.
