Partners and Sponsors

The RGS Econ is based on a partnership between public and private entities. Thus, RGS Econ is partly financed by member institutions (Ruhr University of Bochum, TU Dortmund University, University of Duisburg-Essen) of the University Alliance Metropolis Ruhr (UA Ruhr) and partly by the RWI - Leibniz Institute for Economic Research.

The public aspect is managed by the Ministry of Science and Research (MIWF) of North-Rhine Westphalia (NRW). The foundation of RGS Econ here is to be seen as a pillar of the reform of higher education.

A substantial amount of our resources stem from public and private partners. We are honoured by the support of all our partners and are particularly thankful for the support of:

Stiftung Mercator
Sparkasse Essen
Commerzbank Stiftung

In addition the RGS Econ was supported by the "Pakt für Forschung und Innovation" ("Pact for Research and Innovation") of the Leibniz-Association from 2006 to 2008. The "Pact for Research and Innovation" is one part of the Excellence Initiative by the German Federal and State Governments, which was created to promote excellence in German Research Institutes.
