Helmholtz Association

International Cooperation


As a research organisation that works on behalf of the nation, the Helmholtz Association develops solutions for the pressing questions facing science, industry and society. However, major challenges such as climate change, the energy supply of the future, and combatting widespread diseases can only be tackled globally, over the long term and with a coordinated and systematic use of resources. To this end, the Helmholtz Centres collaborate with the best research institutions in the world and work closely with international experts. The Helmholtz Association is set apart by its research infrastructure, which is unparalleled in the world and serves as a basis for international collaboration and research at the highest level. Over 6,200 visiting researchers from all over the world use the Helmholtz Association's large-scale facilities each year.

Global teamwork for excellent results

The Helmholtz Association and its centres maintain numerous strategic partnerships with institutions and organisations all over the world, including countries such as Russia, China, the US and China. Furthermore, the organisation has been active in education and research programmes in newly industrialised and developing countries in regions like Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia for many years. The Helmholtz Association's research centres also work successfully with European research institutions. In addition, the association's researchers benefit greatly from the instruments provided under the EU Framework Research Programmes. They have been particularly successful in tenders issued by the European Research Council and are also actively involved in European collaborative projects. As strategic partners, and frequently as project coordinators, Helmholtz Centres and their researchers contribute their expertise and share their research infrastructure with the European scientific community.
