The Ruhrverband consistently tries to broaden its knowledge in the service of water. Only if scientific research is translated into optimised processes and new products in a timely fashion will we be able to fulfil our mandatory task of protecting the resource water in future as much as today.
For that reason, the Ruhrverband sets great store by networking with research institutions through its university cooperation university cooperation and supports young academics with the Ruhr water scholarship.
However, knowledge transfer does not only start at university: the Ruhrverband's school communication programme aims at supplying children and young people from primary school to grammar school with age-specific information and teaching materials on the topic of water. The Ruhrverband is also actively involved in the youth dialogue, a series of events organised by the local initiative "Initiativkreis Ruhrgebiet".
