RWTH Aachen University intends to develop to one of the worldwide leading technical universities through the RWTH Aachen Campus. For this purpose a number of research clusters are supposed to be established on the premises of the RWTH Aachen Campus in which industry companies and university institutes work together in a holistic and interdisciplinary way on defined research focuses in a new quality of cooperation and exchange.

On part of AMAP it is of high interest to “matriculate” itself with own R&D capacities on the Campus and to contribute longterm – beyond single research cooperations – to the activities of research, education and teaching activities of RWTH Aachen University.
