Regional & National Cooperation

In order to bundle competencies and efficiently exchange technological knowledge, HZDR is working closely together with regional and national partners. HZDR is thus collaborating with numerous research facilities in Dresden, and is also active in national working groups and competence pools.

Technische Universität Dresden

TU DresdenThe TU Dresden has been one of the 11German “Excellence Universities” since 2012 and receives national and state funding. HZDR is actively involved in two excellence clusters – Physics of Life (POL) and the Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter (ct.qmat) as well as in the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB).


Signet Dresden-concept, Exzellenz-Initiative, Technische Universität Dresden, Forschungsallianz von TU Dresden und Dresdner ForschungsinstitutenDRESDEN-concept is a TU Dresden network with the HZDR and further strong partners from the scientific and cultural sectors with the objective of making the excellence of Dresden research more visible. The partners tap into and use synergies in the fields of research, training, infrastructure and administration. They are coordinating their scientific strategy and identifying the areas in which Dresden is leading. They are developing a joint strategy for bringing leading global scientists to Dresden.

TU Bergakademie Freiberg

TU Bergakademie Freiberg

The Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF) at HZDR develops innovative procedures for exploring, extracting, processing, refining and recycling raw materials.

It cooperates closely with TU Bergakademie Freiberg. Together with the UVR FIA GmbH corporation in Freiberg the two collaboration partners founded the alliance Freiberg Resource Technologies (FRT).

German Working Group for Repository Research / Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Endlagerforschung

The Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft Endlagerforschung (DAEF) is a merger of leading institutions in repository research. In addition to the HZDR, the Forschungszentrum Jülich, the Öko- Institut e.V., Institute for Applied Ecology, and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are also members in this network. The working group was founded with the objective of making a contribution, through consultation with politics and economics, to secure final disposal of radioactive waste and to design more effective research studies.

Competence Pool for Radiation Research / Kompetenzverbund Strahlenforschung

Logo Kompetenzverbund StrahlenforschungThe Competence Pool for Radiation Research – Kompetenzverbund Strahlenforschung (KVSF) – has the task of ensuring that ample  experts are available, today and in the future, who have a proper overview of historical and up-to-date knowledge regarding the topic of radiation, and who are currently conducting research in this field. For this purpose, promotion of junior scientists and preservation and expansion of pre-existing research facilities comprise the primary focus of efforts. The HZDR Institutes of Radiopharmaceutical Cancer Research and Resource Ecology participate in the KVSF.

Competence Pool East for Nuclear Technology / Kompetenzverbund Ost für Kerntechnik

Button Kompetenzverbund Kerntechnik

The Competence Pool East for Nuclear Technology – Kompetenzverbund Ost für Kerntechnik – is part of the nationwide Competence Pool für Nuclear Technology. They seek to bundle the activities in the field of nuclear safety and repository research, collaborate more intensively with universities and industry, and play a part in advancement of international nuclear safety standards. On the part of the HZDR, the Institutes of Fluid Dynamics and Resource Ecology are participants.
