Water research reaches milestone
As part of the UA Ruhr, the partners have strategically developed their research together. The excellent water research has now won through with the "REASONS" project in the first round of the two-stage excellence competition organised by the federal and state governments.
Teaching and Learning with AI
Will AI replace classrooms in the future? No, says Prof. Dr. Irene-Angelica Chounta in our interview. However, digital, intelligent learning methods will become an essential part of education. The UDE expert advocates for better regulation of AI in education within the Council of Europe.
Eavesdropping on the electron
Data too noisy and not usable? Not necessarily: physicists at UDE have described a method for extracting information from noise. Their discovery has been published in "Physical Review Research".

At the UDE you will meet people from more than 130 nations in a large melting pot. The Ruhr area is a structure of superlatives: Germany's largest settlement area, right in the centre of Europe. Despite all prejudices, it is not grey here, but green. In 2017, Essen was named the "Green Capital of Europe". And the Ruhr region is rich in culture. So rich that the entire region has been declared European Capital of Culture 2010 by the EU. But while other conurbations always try to present their best side, the people in our region show themselves as they are: Imaginative, curious, open-minded.
