Business Metropole Ruhr: about us

As the Business Metropole Ruhr, we network economic players from 53 cities and communities to form an economic area. With innovative projects, we provide impulses for new economic activity and are a contact partner for economic issues beyond the borders of the region.

Combined economic power

53 cities and towns belong to the Metropole Ruhr - we represent their economic interests and ensure nationwide and international visibility of their diverse innovative economic activities. In addition, we coordinate a close exchange between all relevant players and partners - municipalities, the state, and business. In this way, we create a powerful network that successfully leads the region into the future and secures its competitiveness.

Providing momentum in the transformation process

As a region undergoing structural change, the Ruhr Metropolis has years of transformation experience. We use the know-how we have acquired as a result to make the Ruhr one of the most livable economic regions in Europe. Through groundbreaking projects, we are providing stimuli for approaches to new economic activity that will continue to drive the region's steady transformation.

53 cities - one point of contact


The high industrial density and diverse university landscape of the Ruhr Metropolis make the business location particularly attractive for investors and those looking to relocate. Therefore, the Business Metropole Ruhr is the contact for business topics beyond the borders of the region. Whether a matter of contacts to companies and municipalities or knowledge about areas and networks, our team of experts is happy to mediate.
