About Science College

The opportunity to get in contact with the diversity of science at large, the intellectual exchange and communication across disciplinary boundaries, makes the RUB Research School unique. Science College is one of the most appropriate means to direct budding researchers' attention to overarching issues of science and society. The event covers recent transdisciplinary research topics and involves leading minds of relevant disciplines.

To receive the Research School certificate, doctoral researchers have to participate in Science College once during the doctorate.

  • Science College 2016 - Chances-Benefits-Networking

    July 7th 2016

    This year’s Science College focuses on the role of RUB Research School as an interdisciplinary graduate school for doctoral researchers at Ruhr-University.

    The programme revolves around the Research School’s aims as a graduate school and its offers to doctoral researchers as a complementary training facility. Questions and discussions will focus on the importance of these kinds of institutions for doctoral researchers.
    The event will be hosted by our current speaker Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Löwenstein and as a special guest Prof. Dr. Nils Metzler-Nolte – former speaker of RUB Research School. They will give short presentations of what Research School was, is, and will become.

    We are convinced the best way to improve and develop our offers is with the support of our doctoral researchers. Hence, as participants of the Science College 2016, you will be given the opportunity to take part in discussion, ask questions or simply to tell us your opinion. We always welcome feedback from the doctoral community – the essence of RUB Research School.
