Our Research Centers at a glance

From A for astrophysics to Z for cell research: The scientists at our 18 Helmholtz Centers work on numerous highly complex topics. Together, we want to contribute to solving major and urgent questions facing society.

To this end, our centers use state-of-the-art scientific infrastructures, especially large-scale equipment such as light sources and satellite systems, laboratories and accelerators. We also make these facilities available to other researchers in the international knowledge community.

The intensive exchange of knowledge between the centers, but also with other leading research organizations, is an important element of our cutting-edge research.
