Some come as young researchers, others as established scientists; some stay for a few weeks, others forever. What they all have in common: they have left their home country. Forschungszentrum Jülich has made it its mission to offer guest scientists optimal conditions. This sometimes opens up completely new doors and perspectives.

Wettlauf zum ersten Quantencomputer

Quantum TechnologyAn open race

Computers that calculate according to the rules of quantum physics could possibly solve special tasks faster than today’s supercomputers. However, universal machines of this kind still only exist as laboratory experiments. Jülich scientists are working on the possibility that this could change in the future.

Brain ResearchMental Fitness Improved by Multilingualism?

Learning a second language increases your brain volume. As part of the 1000BRAINS study, scientists from Jülich, Düsseldorf, and Aachen investigated how the relevant brain regions change during the course of aging. The results were published in the renowned journal Neurobiology of Aging and may explain why multilinguals often stay mentally fit for longer.
