HumTec started as a project house within the future concept "RWTH 2020: Meeting Global Challenges- The Integral Interdisciplinary University of Technology" of the Excellence Initiative of the German Federal and State Governments (2007-2019). The future concept of RWTH Aachen University contained four measures, including the strengthening of interdisciplinary cooperation. HumTec contributed to this by creating a framework for cutting-edge interdisciplinary research. In the Project House, humanities scholars, social scientists, engineers, physicians and natural scientists conduct research in interdisciplinary teams on problems that are highly relevant to society.
