Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences or HSRW, is a public university with an international orientation. The university opened for the winter semester of 2009/10 and reached full size in 2013, with about 5,000 students. The university has two campuses: in Kleve and in Kamp-Lintfort. The name for the university has been adopted from the German river Rhine and Dutch river Waal. The area between these two rivers have joined to a combined development group. ‘Euregio Rhine-Waal’. The university is one of the group’s projects. The current President of the university is Dr. Heide Naderer.
The state government of North Rhine-Westphalia organized a competition for the creation of three new Universities on 28 May 2008. The applicants were Kleve and the “We-4”-cities , but the concept of separate universities was discarded. Instead, in November 2008, the responsibility was assigned jointly to the two competing candidates Kleve and Kamp-Lintfort, to establish a bipolar university. In April 2009, Prof. Dr. Marie-Louise Klotz was appointed President and Prof. Dr. Martin Goch as Vice President of the university. The official founding date of the University was 1 May 2009.
