In 1994 an agreement was reached to compensate Bonn in various ways for this loss of status and income. The Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg was founded in 1995. 

The H-BRS was founded on the joint initiative of the federal parliament of Germany and the federal government of Germany, the parliament of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the federal state government of North Rhine-Westphalia.


At Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg you can currently choose from 38 practically-oriented study programmes on the basis of the latest research findings (21 Bachelors and 17 Master programmes).


The Centre for Science and Technology Transfer (ZWT) is Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University’s central service and contact point for scientists in the area of applied research.

It helps scientists with project acquisition and project management for public funding. In addition, it promotes cooperation with companies, associations and organisations by establishing contacts and by providing advice on relevant funding programmes as well as legal issues and aspects of commercialisation. It supports scientists and companies with the implementation of joint research and development projects.

The Centre carries out patent reviews and patent commercialisation within the framework of the legal provisions.
