Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr

Overview

Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr (LSCR) is a research collaboration focussed 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, deriving policies to address the impending under-provision of health care and evaluating selected measures to improve the efficiency of health-care provision.

Specifically LSCR focusses on the three following research areas: (1) Regional Variations in Health Care: The demand and supply of health care displays large regional variation. The LSCR studies the reasons of this variation and assesses its consequences for health policy. (2) Sustainability of Supply: The demographic change will lead to a decline in the number of qualified health-care personnel. We analyse the consequences of this development for health care provision to find solutions for ensuring access to ambulatory medical care in rural areas. (3) Prevention: Given that health-care resources are dwindling, one way to maintain high quality health care is reducing demand. In this context disease prevention and understanding the demand for health care is becoming increasingly important.

LSCR combines the long-standing health economic expertise of the RWI – Leibniz Institute of Economic Research, the University of Duisburg-Essen, and Tilburg University and creates the first research community in Germany to focus on health care in demographically declining regions. It is funded by the Leibniz Association and exhibits a vivid network of external partners (AOK-NordWest, DRV-Westfalen, Maternus-Klinik Bad Oeynhausen, and WINEG).
