Research

Our research centers develop joint research programs. This ensures that complex issues at Helmholtz are always tackled by highly qualified scientists from a wide range of disciplines. International, independent reviewers examine the quality and innovative strength of our programs, and only after their approval are they funded.

Our Reserach

In our six research fields, we address the big questions of our time every day.

What we research

First-class research needs unique infrastructures. We develop, build and operate powerful research facilities such as the world's most powerful X-ray laser, research vessels, supercomputers and accelerator facilities. They are used by thousands of researchers from all over the world every year.

The combination of talent and the resources that are continuously available for research is unique at this level in the world.
