Dr. Wilhelm Meulenberg erläutert im Membranzentrum die Funktionsweise der PVD-Anlage (Physical Vapor Deposition).
Membrane Centre for Energy-Efficient Technologies Officially Opened
Jülich, 24 August 2015 – Membranes can separate climate-damaging greenhouse gases from flue gases much more efficiently than conventional methods and they also form the basis for novel fuel cells and batteries. The new membrane centre opened on Monday at Forschungszentrum Jülich by State Secretary for Research Thomas Rachel, Member of the German Bundestag, will provide new impetus for research in this field. The facility received funding of € 15.5 million from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Modelling the Human Brain

To understand the human brain using simulation – that’s the vision of the Human Brain Project (HBP). In order to make it a reality, researchers from 23 countries are working together to build a unique infrastructure that will allow them to establish and further develop a brain research and information technology network. Jülich scientists will contribute their expertise primarily in the areas of structure and function of the brain, as well as supercomputing and simulation. more: Modelling the Human Brain …

The Human Brain Project

Scientists involved in the Human Brain Project aim to gain a deeper understanding of the human brain. This will not only help to understand what makes us human, but also lay the foundation for new therapies to treat brain-related diseases. New insights might also be useful for new approaches in information technology. Four videos highlight various aspects of research undertaken at Jülich within the European Human Brain Project.
