To the registration

On May 15, the MRD Industry Day goes into the next round! It is the largest networking event in the Ruhr area for the transfer of knowledge in materials research from the university to start-ups to industrial companies. The event is organized in cooperation between the Materials Research Department (MRD) and WORLDFACTORY Incubator Materials and will be held in English.

The MRD Industry Day: Science for Innovation sheds light on how research in materials processing, microsystem technologies, and materials simulation at RUB is transferred into industry activities. Three dedicated sessions will each feature talks from MRD scientists, RUB start-up teams and partners from industry on one of those specific research fields. The talks will also demonstrate the diversity of materials science at RUB and beyond.

The lecture program will be complimented by an exhibition that further promotes the exchange between scientists, start-ups and industry representatives. The expo is open to exhibitors from science, industry and start-ups to present their latest innovations in materials-related research and products.


The 2023 MRD Industry Day: Science for Innovation will start at 8:45 a.m. and end around 5:30 p.m. The 9 talks in the morning and midday, interrupted by a long lunch break for networking, will be followed by the expo in the afternoon from 2:20 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Here you can download the preliminary programme.
