Involved Universities

The RAPP Center comprises the three universities Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB), Technische Universität Dortmund (TUDO), and Universität Duisbug/Essen (U-DUE) that are already linked within the Universitätsallianz Ruhr. In conjunction with Bergische Universität Wuppertal (BUW), they further intensify collaboration in their joint science projects. About 80 researchers, from M.Sc. level up to senior staff members, investigate fundamental physics questions to break new ground by combining knowledge from the their fields of research.
