The Helmholtz Office Brussels

The Brussels Office helps increasing the participation of Helmholtz Centres in EU programmes 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 collaborating in research – because societal challenges do not end at borders. Therefore, Helmholtz supports the concept of the European Research Area.

Our services

For our Helmholtz Centers, we offer amongst others:

  • Information and analyses: on work programmes and calls for proposals in the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
  • Consulting: center-specific, both legal-administrative and research-related
  • Representation of interests: events (in presence and virtually), (coordinated) statements
  • Targeted, individual ERC coaching for three funding lines
  • A hub in the EU heart of Brussels: two conference rooms with modern video conferencing systems, guest workstations
