HZDR Mission Statement
The long-term goal of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) is to conduct cutting-edge research in the areas of energy, health, and matter. Strategic collaborations with both national and international partners allow us to address some of the pressing challenges faced by modern-day industrialized society:
- How can energy and resources be utilized in an efficient, safe, and sustainable way?
- How can malignant tumors be more precisely visualized, characterized, and more effectively treated?
- How do matter and materials behave under the influence of strong fields and in smallest dimensions?
Several large-scale research facilities, each with a unique experimental focus, are available to both internal and external users to assist them with finding answers to these scientific questions. By actively applying our research findings, we are making a valuable contribution to the future of our economy and society.
The HZDR offers high-level education and training programs to its scientific and technical staff in close collaboration with universities and colleges. We are committed to helping employees at our six research sites Dresden, Freiberg, Görlitz, Grenoble/France, Hamburg, and Leipzig achieve a sound balance between their professional and family lives.
