Forschungszentrum Jülich

Forschungszentrum Jülich makes a vital contribution to solving major challenges facing society in the fields of information, energy, and bioeconomy. It focuses on the future of information technologies and information processing, complex processes in the human brain, the transformation of the energy system, and a sustainable bioeconomy. Forschungszentrum Jülich develops simulation and data sciences as a key research method and makes use of large, often unique, scientific infrastructures. Its work spans a range of topics and disciplines and it exploits synergies between the research areas. With some 6,100 employees, Jülich–a member of the Helmholtz Association–is one of Europe's large research centres.

Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS)

The JCNS develops and operates neutron scattering instruments at the best neutron sources in the world and provides access to these instruments for scientists from universities and research institutions both in Germany and worldwide within the framework of a user programme. In parallel, the JCNS uses these instruments for its own research programme focusing on "Neutron Scattering and Soft Matter", "Quantum Materials and Collective Phenomena", and "Neutron Analytics for Energy Research".

Engineering and Technology (ZEA-1)

ZEA-1 develops and manufactures, with and for our partners, scientific-technical devices, systems and processes needed for cutting-edge research that are not available on the market.

The ZAT was established in 1974 from the “Central Institute for Reactor Experiments” (ZfR) and renamed the "Central Department of General Technology”. In 2011, the ZAT was restructured as the “Central Institute of Technology” (ZEA-1) and the institutes ZEA-1, ZEA-2 and ZEA-3 were created.

DENIM will be held in Building 04.7.

On the Forschungszentrum campus, you can use WLAN inside any building. The use of “eduroam”, which may already have been configured on your device by your home institute, is supported at Forschungszentrum Jülich. If for some reason it is not possible for you to access “eduroam” WLAN, a voucher to enable you to do so is available at the Information Desk in the Lecture Hall (Building 04.7).
