Jülich und Umgebung


Jülich und Umgebung

Between large cities but still surrounded by nature: The central campus of the research centre is situated in a greenbelt area of the city of Jülich, while also being located in the urban triangle between Aachen, Cologne and Düsseldorf. The majority of the scientific institutes as well as the central administrative and technical departments are located on campus. The Institute for a Sustainable Hydrogen Economy is also located close to the campus in the nearby Brainergy Park.

Jülich (population 33,000) is both an old fortress town and a modern research location. More than 13,000 people work in Jülich. With Forschungszentrum Jülich, the Jülich campus of Aachen University of Applied Sciences, the solar thermal power plant, and Technologiezentrum Jülich, the city of Jülich has a large share of the research and technology potential of the Aachen region, which is rarely rivalled elsewhere in the world.
