Dual Career Network Ruhr

Funded by Stiftung Mercator and coordinated by the Mercator Research Center Ruhr (MERCUR), the “Dual Career Network Ruhr (DCN Ruhr)” project has been established with the aim of promoting and expanding the collaboration among research, economic, and administrative institutions in the Ruhr area by recruiting and retaining talent: the objective of the project is to set up a regional network that assists the partners of newly appointed professors in finding a suitable job. To this end, DCN Ruhr is the networking hub connecting universities with research institutions, public authorities, associations, and enterprises in the region. The project thus boosts the national and international competitiveness, promotes equal opportunities, and helps balance academic careers with family responsibilities across the research and economic hub Ruhr.
