Funding from foundations – MERCUR funding

MERCUR funding – Mercator Research Center Ruhr

The Mercator Research Center Ruhr (MERCUR), founded in March 2010 by Stiftung Mercator and the Ruhr University Alliance (UARuhr), supports the strategic development plans of the Ruhr University Bochum, the universities of Dortmund and Duisburg Essen and consequently the targets of UARuhr. MERCUR promotes both the profile building of the individual universities as well as their cooperation, thereby strengthening science in the Ruhr metropolis and making it more attractive for international vocations.
