Research Environment

Located in the historical Stadtpalais of Aachen’s Theaterstraße, c:o/re creates an innovative intellectual space for investigating the manifold research cultures in the sciences.

As part of RWTH Aachen University – a University of Excellence and one of the largest technical universities in Europe – the center’s location offers various possibilities for collaboration: with the different institutes in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and beyond, with the Jülich-Aachen Research Alliance JARA BRAIN, and with the institutes in the German-Belgian-Dutch Region “Euregio” engaging in Science and Technology Studies (Universities of Liège and Maastricht).
