Created by Chris, Tobi & Corinna Universities in the Ruhrgebiet The Ruhr area has six universities and nine universities of applied sciences with about 180,000 students and numerous research institutes and technology centres. This is the highest density of education and research centres in Europe. Engineering and the natural sciences are particularly well represented.
Created by Chris, Tobi & Corinna Football Football has an important social function in the Ruhr area. The two biggest clubs in this region are Borussia Dortmund (BVB) and FC Schalke 04 (S04). Matches between these two rivalling clubs are considered to be among the highlights of the season, and - like all games between the Ruhr clubs - they are called "derbies". BVB, Schalke and MSV Duisburg are founding members of the Bundesliga, the highest football league in Germany. VfL Bochum is one of the oldest modern Bundesliga clubs.
