Research Infrastructures

Our outstanding research infrastructures attract talents from all over the world to our Centers and are the basis for numerous international collaborations.

Examples are the EMIL laboratory of Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, the Energy Lab 2.0. of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the earth observation satellites of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the GeoForschungsZentrum, or the storage ring X-ray radiation sources PETRA III of the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY.

We are also significantly involved in many other internationally operated large-scale facilities in Germany and abroad, such as the X-ray laser European XFEL at DESY, the particle accelerator FAIR at GSI or the European Spallation Source in Lund, which Forschungszentrum Jülich is helping to develop.

The research infrastructures are designed and developed by our researchers together with experts from all over the world. In this way, Helmholtz and its international partners significantly benefit from the exchange of knowledge.
