Besides the WORLDFACTORY there are many other start-up and practical activities on the RUB campus. Here is a selection:

RUB-CampusMap Practice

The RUB CampusMap documents the current practice and entrepreneurship activities at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. The tool makes the variety and diversity of such formats on campus visible: RUB actors can network with each other; students as well as internal and external cooperation partners receive bundled information about current practical and start-up projects.


The inSTUDIES project serves the further development of teaching and consulting at the RUB with the aim of supporting students in developing an individual study profile.

The project focuses on the transitions between school/university and university/professional practice as well as on the individual deepening into the subjects through research-based learning. These interfaces are accompanied by targeted advisory and teaching services. 

The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. More information about this project can be found here:
