Helmholtz Institutes

Helmholtz institutes provide the strategic partnerships between the Helmholtz centres and universities with a special intensity. The establishment of a Helmholtz centre's outpost on the university campus creates the basis for permanent close co-operation in specific areas of research, which are of particular importance to both institutions.
