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. We actively contribute to its further development. Helmholtz scientists, together with their partners, also benefit from Horizon Europe, the EU framework program for science and innovation and the collaboration it allows.

More information coming soon.


The signature of a Consortium Agreement between the partners of a research project is mandatory for most EU research projects. DESCA (Development of a Simplified Consortium Agreement) is a comprehensive Model Consortium Agreement for such projects.
