Why is there an association? What does the association do?

The registered non-profit association, founded on January 10, 2023, serves as a point of contact for friends and sponsors of the HZDR who support the activities of the center both ideally and financially. It appeals to both private individuals and companies. The purpose of the association is to provide resources to promote the research activities of the HZDR and its public presence.
