Prof. Ulrich Rüdiger, Rector of RWTH Aachen University, welcomes Minister Ina Scharrenbach and experts from science and industry in the livestream

 

Modular construction is becoming increasingly important.
"Rising population figures and demographic change require the rapid and high-quality creation of housing as well as healthcare, education and care properties," says Ina Scharrenbach, Minister for Home Affairs, Municipal Affairs, Construction and Equality of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
"In this context, modular construction has evolved in a variety of ways in recent years."

What are the developments in modular construction?
What challenges does modular construction face compared to classic construction?
What role do RWTH Aachen University and the state of NRW play in the topic of modular construction?

These and other questions will be answered by host Prof. Ulrich Rüdiger (Rector of RWTH Aachen University), Ina Scharrenbach (Minister for Home Affairs, Municipal Affairs, Construction and Equality of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia) together with Dr. Carl Richter (Head of the Center Building and Infrastructure Engineering).
In addition to leading space cell manufacturers, Prof. Markus Oeser (Dean of the Faculty of Civil Engineering), Prof. Markus Kuhnhenne (Institute of Steel Construction) and Dr. Klaus Feuerborn (Managing Director of RWTH Aachen Campus GmbH) will also participate.

Everyone is cordially invited to learn more about module construction from experts from science and industry via livestream in Campus Talk #1.
