What Sets Us Apart

The Helmholtz Association promotes talent according to the following principles:

  • Scientists are especially supported from the time of their doctorate to their first professorship.
  • Equal opportunities, internationalization, and transfer of technology are interdisciplinary topics of consistent focus.
  • Wherever possible, scientific and administrative talents are promoted together.
  • We place particular value on professional management. Alongside professional training, we provide and emphasize organizational and management skills. To this end, the Helmholtz Leadership Academy was created.

The Helmholtz Association and the individual Helmholtz Centers complement each other’s work in this area. Their shared goals and standards are outlined in strategies and guidelines.
