In fall 2015, the Ruhr Astroparticle and Plasma Physics Center (RAPP center) was founded in order to combine research efforts within the fields of plasma- and particle-astrophysics in the Ruhr area. The three universities Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Technische Universität Dortmund and Universität Duisbug/Essen are located in a radius of 20 kilometers, enabling close collaboration between the universities.

The founding PIs include Prof. Wolfgang Rhode and Prof. Bernhard Spaan, who are also one of the project leaders of the SFB projects C3, respectively C5. During the Inauguration Workshop Katharina Morik gave an invited talk on the research impact of Data Mining for astroparticle physics.

In the RAPP center, about 80 researchers, from master’s level up to staff members, join forces to investigate fundamental physics questions and to break new ground by combining knowledge from the fields of plasma-, particle- and astrophysics.
