Our new podcast “To the Point – Know More in 240 Seconds” provides you with quick and easy access to exciting and socially relevant research topics from our University.

RWTH experts from science, research, administration, and the RWTH startup scene talk about their latest projects and findings in an understandable and entertaining way.


They explain the background to their work and share and analyze their results and conclusions.


Episode 1 “The Circular Economy”

The circular economy seeks to conserve natural resources. In a perfectly circular economy, raw materials that have already been put into circulation are recycled again and again, so that the generation of waste is avoided and the need for new raw materials as inputs decreases while economic growth continues to be possible. In this way, economy and society move within the natural capacities of the Earth.

The first podcast episode on the Circular Economy is now available.


Episode 2 “Sustainability”

As one of the leading technical universities in Europe, RWTH is deeply aware of its obligation to help make the University more sustainable in all areas. With our efforts, we are committed to fulfilling our responsibility toward society and industry.

The path to becoming a sustainable university of technology is a process. This transformation cannot happen in all the necessary fields overnight, but – as seen in our Sustainability Mission Statement – RWTH is firmly determined to succeed.

The second podcast episode, this time on the topic of “Sustainability” is now available.
