A funding association is financing the junior professorship  "History and Cultural of the Maas/Rhein Region". The  "Fördergemeinschaft Geschichte und Kultur Maas/Rhein" is investing over 500,000 Euros.


The professorship should be occupied by December 1, 2012. Over a period of seven years, it will institutionally network research in Aachen and western Rheinland with research from its neighbors in Belgium and Holland. Projects with regional historical and international components will be developed and carried out. Rector Ernst Schmachtenberg welcomed representatives of the funding association to the signing of the agreement. This traces back to an initiative by Univ.-Prof. Dr.phil. Christine Roll from the Early Modern Age Teaching and Research Area.

RWTH Aachen has won excellent access to regional history with this junior professorship.
