About us

An strong network of universities and research institutions

The Dual Career Network Rhineland consists of universities and research institutions that have combined to make targeted use of the region´s high potential, the abundance of research facilities and collaborating business enterprises in the interests of dual career couples.

  • Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf

  • Forschungszentrum Jülich

  • University of Cologne

  • Hochschule Niederrhein

The Rhineland has a very large number of research facilities; almost half of all public universities in North Rhine-Westphalia are located in the Rhineland, along with two national research centres and numerous institutes of the various research associations. The universities and large research institutions in the Rhineland together with the Chambers of Industry and Commerce have recognized this potential. A forum, “Forschungsdialog Rheinland”, was established to strengthen the competitiveness of the Rhineland  region and  to further develop research ties with industry. All the scientific establishments in the region are presented in the Forschungshandbuch Rheinland (in German).


New network members and partners are welcome!
