In the next 6-8 years, eleven thematic research clusters will be created on Campus Melaten.
At 473,000m2 with immediate proximity to the University Hospital, Campus Melaten is the first phase of construction for RWTH's new research park. Within the next 6-8 years, up to 150 national and international companies with direct connections to institutes and research centers are expected to settle in.
In addition to the construction sites for research clusters, there are special spaces for infrastructural facilities, a center for continuing education, a hotel, a restaurant, a daycare, and various service facilities.
Reicher Haase Associierte GmbH of Aachen created the winning design for the development plans, as part of the urban planning competition on December 7, 2007. A resolution for the development plan was then passed on December 16, 2009. The first phase of construction for the first six research clusters on Campus Melaten is to take place from 2011-2012.
