About Us

Objective

The Association

The Prosperkolleg e.V. organization started its work at the founding meeting on 17.04.2018 after being created by the initiatives of 7 professors at the Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences. 

The goal of this non-profit organization is application-oriented research regarding a digitalized society. The transmission of scientific ideas to the economy and society of the region enables the development of innovation-driving potential for the city of Bottrop and the Ruhr Metropolis.

Especially young and educated people would be supported through the development of interdisciplinary and future-oriented higher education options.

Thus, research, transfer, and higher education opportunities have developed in Bottrop that recognize the chances and risks of a digitalized future as an interdisciplinary task that will affect all of society. In close dialog with science, business and society, the Prosperkolleg e.V. wants to help shape this shared future.
