Forschungszentrum Jülich focuses on use-inspired basic research. It adopts an interdisciplinary approach and investigates relations between research areas energy, information, and sustainable bioeconomy.
The contributions to research and development made by the Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK) include energy conversion methods and energy storage technologies as well as the mechanisms of climate change.
Scientists in the research area of information investigate how information is processed in biological and technical systems. The focus here is on brain research, basic research for future information technologies, and supercomputing.
As the global population increases, agricultural land recedes, and fossil fuel resources are on the decline, there is a need to transition from an oil-based economy to one based on the sustainable use of renewable resources. It is in this respect that the bioeconomy can make some key contributions.
Science is for team players. At Forschungszentrum Jülich, many research groups work together in an interdisciplinary way. The groups are a central place where research takes place.
The Helmholtz Association's six research fields address the pressing issues facing society. Forschungszentrum Jülich contributes its expertise in the fields of energy, matter, information, and earth and environment.
Publications are an important expression of scientific knowledge. They present the work and results of researchers. Jülich scientists are among the most frequently cited worldwide.
Early-career scientists make an important contribution to scientific progress through their commitment and innovation.
