RWTH Aachen: A Hands-on Experience
The Citizens' Forum, RWTHextern, informs citizens in the three country point about RWTH Aachen's activities. Its goal is to provide the most thorough look at the university possible. Initiatives from research, teaching and academic life are edited to target citizens and to be understandable and interesting.
Connection Between the University and the City of Aachen
In doing this, the Citizens' Forum assumes an important intermediary function between the university and the city. RWTHextern Citizens' Forum puts on a diverse program every semester for this purpose.

Uni at City Hall: Panel Discussion with RWTH Aachen Researchers
"Higgs Particle Discovered!“ It was hard to miss this headline over the summer. But what's behind the Higgs particle or the "Higgs-Boson"? What experiments are conducted at CERN in Genf to observe it? And above all, what does RWTH Aachen have to do with it? Multiple institutes from the RWTH Aachen Department of Physics were leading participants in the search, and RWTH Aachen scientists have a large stake in its discovery. They helped plan the project, developed the technology, and built parts of the high-resolution silicon trace detector and the myon chambers in Aachen.
RWTH Aachen Professors Thomas Hebbeker, Michael Krämer, and Achim Stahl discussed the background of the topic during a panel discussion moderated by WDR journalist Bettina Staubitz.
