The Ruhr‐Universität was established in 1965 and is located in Bochum.
Materials related research and teaching is a considerable part in the faculties of Mechanical Engineering, Physics and Chemistry because Materials Science is an important driving force for technical innovation and progress in the Ruhr‐Area. The chairs of the IMPRS‐SurMat partners have for example an outstanding expertise in synthesis of electrocatalyst materials and localized electrochemical characterization, in combinatorial materials synthesis, in preparation of atomically defined interfaces, and in high resolution TEM of materials.
Several chairs of three faculties are linked to the IMPRS‐SurMat:
- Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
- Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry
- Faculty of Physics and Astronomy
In addition, the Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulation (ICAMS), located at the Ruhr-Universität is a strong cooperation partner of the IMPRS-SurMat.
