RUC was originally established in order to challenge academic traditions and to experiment with new ways to create and acquire knowledge. At RUC a project and problem oriented approach to knowledge creation is cultivated, because it is believed that the most relevant results are obtained by solving real problems in collaboration with others. An interdisciplinary approach is employed, because no major problems are ever resolved on the basis of any single academic discipline alone. We also cultivate transparency, because participation and knowledge-sharing are prerequisites for freedom of thought, democracy, tolerance and development.
