The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf is pursuing new insights that will allow us to maintain and improve all of our lives. That’s why the HZDR conducts research in the sectors Energy, Health and Matter.
As of 2011, the HZDR has been member of the Helmholtz Association, Germany's largest scientific organization. The Forschungszentrum Rossendorf was founded in 1992. It was then a member of the Leibniz Association.
In addition to its headquarters in Dresden, the HZDR operates five other research sites: Grenoble, Freiberg, Görlitz, Leipzig and Schenefeld near Hamburg. The HZDR Institute for Radiooncology - OncoRay is located on the University Hospital Dresden campus.
In order to inspire the next generation for science, the HZDR runs the DeltaX School Lab. It offers various activities for young people from grade five to secondary school levels. Furthermore, we offer trainings for teachers.
