In a region where lignite was once mined, structural change is now giving rise to innovations.

Similar to the Ruhr region, the "Rhenish mining district" is also undergoing a successful transformation through new ideas and business models. The region, which was characterised by lignite mining, will in future develop new business areas with growth prospects in the fields of energy and industry, space and infrastructure, resources and agribusiness, innovation and education.

As EurA AG, we support the market leaders of tomorrow in this transformation process. With our location in NRW, we are available to you as a contact partner in the Aachen, Cologne and Düsseldorf region as well as through our office in Herten in the Ruhr area.

The goal is a structured approach that also includes the interfaces to potential project partners. Questions relating to the project concept include:

  • What are critical milestones on your development path?
  • How can development risks be minimised?
  • Where do you need external expertise?

With our support during the project conceptualisation phase, you can implement your project efficiently and in a structured manner.


A carefully thought-out project concept is crucial to the success of the application We are familiar with the requirements of the individual funding programmes and take them into account at an early stage of the project. In this way, we ensure that all formal and legal requirements are met.

Our main topics



Space technologies offer considerable benefits to numerous terrestrial applications and lead to the preservation and improvement of quality of life. Space services (navigation, communication, remote sensing) improve processes and increase the safety of critical structures. They also harbour a number of opportunities in the context of climate change and food security, as well as in the areas of biodiversity conservation and sustainable agriculture.



As a versatile energy carrier, hydrogen enables the coupling of electricity, heat and mobility in an emission-free energy economy. Its applications range from energy storage to use as a fuel. Hydrogen can be produced by electrolysis from renewable energy sources, which emphasises its role as a key component of a sustainable energy supply. It will also become an important raw material in a decarbonised industry.


Surface technology

As a cross-sectional technology, surface technology plays a decisive role in realising the sustainability goals of federal policy and in promoting efficiency and resource conservation in product manufacturing. Its areas of application include fuel cell technology, hydrogen technology, wind and solar energy as well as high-performance electronics and battery technology.

EurA networks – managed in Aachen

EurA networks bring together expertise and connect development partners, users and potential customers in order to efficiently harmonise systems and components. Their aim is to initiate development projects for specific applications and to utilise public funding for this purpose. They actively promote dialogue and networking between companies and research institutes from different fields of work. These networks focus on R&D topics that offer promising success and market opportunities.
