Research

Challenges in Health Care

Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr is a research collaboration focused 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, to derive policies to address the impending under-provision of health care and to evaluate selected measures to improve the efficiency of health-care provision.

The projects of the first funding period (2016 - 2020) can be accessed here.

Research Area


Regional Variation

Health care supply and demand display large regional variation. LSCR studies the reasons for this variation and considers the consequences for health policy. This research area consists of the following five projects.

Research Area


Sustainable Supply

Demographic trends will result in a reduction of qualified health-care personnel. We analyse how this development will affect health care provision in order to develop solutions that ensure access to ambulatory care in rural areas.

Research Area


Nursing care for an ageing population

The proportion of elderly people is steadily increasing. Ensuring adequate nursing care is a major social challenge. We address the effects of informal care on labor force participation, the effects of staffing arrangements on the quality of care in nursing homes, and the causes and consequences of loneliness among elderly people.

About us

Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr

Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr is a research collaboration focused 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, to derive policies to address the impending under-provision of health care and to evaluate selected measures to improve the efficiency of health-care provision.

LSCR focuses on the three research areas: Regional Variation, Sustainable Supply, Prevention.
