The Helmholtz-Office Brussels

The Helmholtz Brussels Office helps increasing the participation of Helmholtz Centers in EU programs such as Horizon Europe. With our services, we support intensifying and expanding networks and research collaboration in Europe and beyond.

Helmholtz in Europe

Shaping a sustainable future for Europe strongly depends on collaborating on research because societal challenges do not end at borders. Therefore, Helmholtz supports the concept of the European Research Area.
