„In the competition for high potentials in science and business, a strong city profile is advantageous. Essen’s high attractiveness as a university location for international students forms an excellent foundation for this. A joint strategy of science, business, culture and administration concentrates and pushes the strengths of Essen as an important and attractive business and university location in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The initiative “Science City Essen” is a driving force for such a development. We at the Student Union Essen-Duisburg are looking forward to helping shape the location with a diverse range of offers from gastronomy, housing, student financing, advice, childcare and intercultural opportunities- especially for young people. As a member of the “Science City Essen” initiative, we would like to make our contribution to raising the profile of the city of Essen as a science location and to show: People enjoy studying here.“
