The neighbouring universities of Bochum, Dortmund, and Duisburg-Essen established the University Alliance Metropolis Ruhr to create a university network of 89,000 students, 1250 professors, and a unique diversity of disciplines. The aim of the alliance is to promote the strengths of the individual universities and pursue common research and teaching programmes with the objective of establishing the Ruhr as a region of higher education excellence.

The Metropolis Ruhr is situated in the west of Germany in the Federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Throughout the region there live about 5.7 million people in 11 cities and 42 smaller municipalities. When most people think about the Metropolis Ruhr, they think about heavy industry and coal. In recent years the region has undergone a major transformation and is changed from a grey industrial area into a modern and trendy culture metropolis perfectly prepared to host the annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science.

See you in Bochum in 2017
