RWTH Strives to become an EXIST Entrepreneurial University


In February 2012, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) has selected RWTH Aachen as one of the 20 universities eligible for participation in the next round of the "EXIST Culture of Entrepreneurship - The Entrepreneurial University" competition. The competition aims to support institutions of higher education to develop and establish a comprehensive, university-wide strategy to boost entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial spirit at the university.  


RWTH Aachen has been invited to created a detailed strategy by the end of October for developing an entrepreneurial culture at the university. The ten best concepts will be chosen from the 20 remaining universities and will receive comprehensive financial support of up to 5 milllion Euros over the next five years.

The RWTH Aachen Entrepreneurship Center is currently conducting a survey titled "Entrepreneurship at RWTH Aachen" in order to evaluate the existing services for supporting entrepreneurship and to gather ideas for further development. The knowledge acquired here will be directly used to develop the RWTH Aachen wide strategy. The survey is directed towards all students and researchers at RWTH Aachen. It would be great if you could participate in the survey.
