Cooperation Partners

"No cooperation may lack a shot of personal warmth or a shot of personal affection. Where it freezes, nothing grows." (Julius Langbehn, 1851-1907, german author)

Cooperational arrangements with Universities

A general framework for cooperation in research, teaching, transfer and service is created through cooperation arrangements between national and international universities and Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University. In particular, this cooperation is to be used to conduct PhDs.

Further collaborations are in the pipeline.

Cooperation with the Promotionskolleg NRW

The Promotionskolleg NRW is a public-law corporation based in Bochum which was established by the sponsoring universities on the basis of a public-law administrative agreement on 14 December 2020. The aim of the Promotionskolleg NRW, which is anchored in Hochschulgesetz NRW 2019, is to create the conditions for doctorates at universities of applied sciences in cooperation with the sponsoring universities.

The Promotionskolleg NRW is divided into departments in which professors and doctoral candidates from universities of applied sciences and universities network thematically. The departments offer doctoral programmes. The following expert committees have already been founded:

  • Building and Culture
  • Computer Science and Data Science
  • Life Sciences
  • Media and Communication
  • Resources
  • Social and Health
  • Technology and Systems
  • Business and Markets

A total of 30 research-active professors from our university are involved in these subject groups. This means that the H-BRS is currently the second largest group of professorial members in the GI NRW after the TH Köln. Prof. Dr. Rainer Herpers is Director of the Department of Computer Science and Data Science; Linda Rustemeier (Promotionskolleg NRW) has been supporting him in this task since 2017.
