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 sind uns deshalb die gute Vernetzung innerhalb von

Research Infrastructures

Scientific research equipment of national and international importance is operated at the HZDR and as such the HZDR is coordinating member and partner of numerous collaborations and projects. The scientific facilities are equally available to external guest researchers from science and economy.

Projects for the Future

In order to prepare the Helmholtz cen­ter even bet­ter for the future three large projects are currently in progress: a Cen­ter for Radio­pharma­ceutical Tumor Research, the project DRESDYN, and the "Helmholtz International Beamline for Extreme Fields - HIBEF" at the European XFEL in Hamburg.

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, se­veral roadmap processes for research infrastructures as well as Helmholtz cross program initiatives. HZDR also hosts the Helmholtz Research School NanoNet.

Strategic Partnerships and Collaborations

To concentrate competencies and share expertise efficiently, the HZDR works closely with national and international partners inside and outside the Helmholtz Association. The Center thus is active in many important associations and competence networks.
