What defines us
Helmholtz is shaping the world of tomorrow. Through cutting-edge research, we help to preserve and improve the foundations of human life.
Our research thrives on the excellence and ideas of the people who conduct it. We promote talent through all career stages and offer a unique working environment: First-class laboratories and equipment, long-term funded projects, and national and international networks.
Diversity, equal opportunities and work-life balance are guiding principles of our talent development. We support our employees individually at every stage of their careers. For example, we provide particularly intensive support to scientists who are preparing for a professorship after completing their doctorate. We specifically support employees who are committed to the transfer of knowledge and technologies to society and industry. We also place particular emphasis on the (tailored) development of managers from science and administration at all career levels in the Helmholtz Leadership Academy.
