Forschungszentrum Jülich is opening its doors once again this year to all who want to learn more about the work and research conducted here on campus.
From 10:00 to 17:00, visitors will learn about research fields and international projects as well as fascinating highlights. Attractions will include Europe’s fastest supercomputer JUQUEEN, Jülich energy and climate research, the new Jülich PET Centre for the diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases, as well as Jülich’s research for the Human Brain Project. This project aims to use simulations to improve our understanding of the structure and function of the human brain, and thus improve the available options for diagnosing and treating brain diseases, for example.
A knowledge and experiment show on the stage in front of the lake will showcase hand-on science for visitors of all ages. Secondary school students and undergraduates will have an opportunity to learn about training and career opportunities at Jülich and to see what life on campus is like.
The focus this year is on sustainability. Jülich’s ‘Sustainable Campus’ exhibition area will show visitors how research activities, projects and initiatives can be implemented and pursued in a sustainable manner.
The event is free of charge and registration is not necessary. A shuttle service will connect visitors to local public transport.
