“Tell Me About It, RWTH!”
Structural Change in the Rhenish Mining Area
With the phase-out of coal-fired power generation, the Rhenish mining area is facing a large-scale transformation process affecting all areas of life. This structural change poses a huge challenge, and it is taking place right outside the gates of the University. In 2019, reseachers at RWTH launched the REVIERa transformation platform with the aim of bringing together researchers and stakeholders to jointly help shape the future of the Mining Area.
In the podcast “Tell Me About It, RWTH!, we talk to researchers about the Rhenish mining area and how the region may develop in the future. Our guests give insights into their research and shed light on the transformation process from their perspective. In our interviews, we will be talking about questions such as:
- “What makes the region attractive for start-up companies?”
- “What are the opportunities offered by structural change?”
- “What role do RWTH students play in the transformation process?”
