Spitzenforschung am Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf

Das Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf gehört zur Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft Deutscher Forschungszentren und strebt nach neuen Erkenntnissen, um unsere Lebensgrundlagen zu erhalten und zu verbessern. Dafür wird am HZDR in Dresden und weiteren Standorten Forschung in den Bereichen Energie, Gesundheit und Materie betrieben. Unsere Großgeräte helfen auch externen Gästen aus der ganzen Welt bei der Beantwortung von drängenden Fragen der Gesellschaft.

Das HZDR ist zukunftsorientiert und wagt den Blick über den eigenen Tellerrand. Wichtig ist uns deshalb die gute Vernetzung innerhalb der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft und die Kooperation mit universitären und außeruniversitären Partnern in DRESDEN-concept.

Helmholtz Networks

The Helmholtz Association promotes innovative research collaborations between Helmholtz centers, universities and further academic partners at home and abroad. The HZDR is actively involved in the Helmholtz Alliance LIMTECH, two Helmholtz Virtual Institutes and several roadmap processes for research infrastructures as well as Helmholtz cross program initiatives. HZDR also hosts the Helmholtz Research School NanoNet. More
