UMSICHT Friends and Patrons Group
The UMSICHT Friends and Patrons Group (»UMSICHT-Förderverein«) has set itself the task of cultivating applied research in the field of environmental, safety and energy technology.
The goal of the sponsoring association is to initiate innovative research and development projects at a very early stage, both ideally and materially, and to open up access to future-oriented and sustainable technological developments for North Rhine-Westphalia – and in particular for the Ruhr area. The focus is on project ideas in the fields of environmental, process and energy technology.
In addition to technical-oriented preliminary work (e. g. proof of principle), the members invest in forecast studies on current topics, shape public opinion by sponsoring events and support young researchers. Furthermore, outstanding master's and bachelor's theses are awarded and the UMSICHT Science Award is conferred.
