The link between the two universities involved in TWM is obviously given by their geographical location, both closely connected to the Rhine valley. Both universities cover a wide range of topics related to water ecology and water management. Added value lies in the combination of these competencies and the opportunity to profit from the international expertise both universities have gained in recent years.
The University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) is located in the heart of the most active university landscape in Europe, called “Germany’s Academic Triangle”. It has been recently listed No. 13 among the worlds young universities. More then 41,000 students are currently registered at UDE, served and supervised by a team of more than 4,500 academic and non-academic staff. Read more about research at UDE.
Water management related issues at UDE are concentrated at the ZWU - Centre for Water and Environmental Research, which supports the faculties of biology, medical biology, chemistry and engineering. The Centre coordinates TWM too. More information about UDE, including campus maps, is provided at the UDE website.
