Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr


Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr is a research collaboration focused on “Health care challenges in regions with declining and ageing populations”. Its aim is to analyse the causes and consequences of regional differences in health care, to derive policies to address the impending under-provision of health care and to evaluate selected measures to improve the efficiency of health-care provision.

LSCR combines the health economic expertise of the RWI – Leibniz Institute of Economic Research, the University of Duisburg-EssenTilburg University, the University of Paderborn  the Vienna University of Economics and Business and the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg and creates the first research community to focus on health care in demographically declining regions in Germany. It is funded by the Leibniz Association  and exhibits a collaboration with the statutory health insurance provider TK.
