The joint anniversary exhibition of RWTH and the City of Aachen at Centre Charlemagne will provide fascinating insights into the history and development of the University. It offers visitors the chance to discover different research highlights and the primary focus of all relevant areas from the past 150 years.

RWTH and the City of Aachen have now set a new exhibition date: October 30, 2021 to February 13, 2022. The vernissage will take place on Friday, October 29, 2021.

Originally planned to run from May 19, 2020 to August 9, 2020, the exhibition had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In keeping with the anniversary motto of “Lernen. Forschen. Machen.”, the exhibition exemplifies how relevant RWTH has been for the City of Aachen and surrounding areas since it was founded and how the University will continue to be highly significant for the local area in the future. This will be conveyed in a range of different research exhibition items – most of which we now use in our everyday lives, or will use in the future. Together, they show the historical development the University has significantly contributed to.

The exhibition will focus on the following topics, among others:

  • Historical development (founding, key data, present, and future)
  • Internationalization
  • Innovations
  • Teaching
  • Gender and diversity
  • People and well-known personalities
  • Economy/Transfer/Innovations
  • Interdisciplinarity
  • Young talent (students, trainees, scholars, researchers)
  • Social responsibility
  • Urban planning and demographic development

The exhibition will also feature a varied program of supporting events designed jointly by the city and the University. This will be published at a later date.
