Collaboration within the Helmholtz Association
Together with the other 18 centers in the Helmholtz Association and partners from all over the world, the HZDR researchers seek to develop new solutions, processes and products based on their findings of fundamental research.
Today, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf is partner in the following Helmholtz networks and of a Helmholtz Institute:
- Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF) – joint instutite with the TU Bergakademie Freiberg
- Helmholtz Cross-institutional Infrastructures: HIBEF, HEMCP, HEMF, ATHENA and HESEB
Furthermore, HZDR scientists are actively engaged in the IHRS NanoNet as well as in Helmholtz cross-program initiatives and activities.
IHRS NanoNet - International Helmholtz Research School for Nanoelectronic Networks
The IHRS NanoNet is an interdisciplinary research school in the field of nano-electronics open to outstanding students of all nationalities with the following backgrounds: physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and materials science.
The 3-years PhD program includes independent research work in a project involving different branches of science and engineering. The well-structured scientific curriculum provides comprehensive training in technical and professional skills.
- HZDR (coordinator)
- Technische Universität Dresden [Dresden Univeresity of Technology]
- Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden
- Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing
- Nanoelectronics Materials Laboratory gGmbH
The IHRS NanoNet is funded by the Initiative and Networking Fund of the Helmholtz Association.
Helmholtz Cross-program Initiatives and Activities
A multitude of research programs in the six research fields of the Helmholtz Association tackle the major challenges of society, economy and science. Thus, the Association has established cross-program structures to bundle existing expertise across several programs. The HZDR is a partner in the cross-program initiative "Technology and Medicine". In addition, the Center is engagend in the following cross-program activities:
- Radiation Research
- Materials Research – Energy Supply
- Mineral Resources
Russian Science Foundation: Helmholtz-RSF Joint Research Groups
With the program "Helmholtz-RSF Joint Research Groups", a privileged partnership between the Helmholtz Association and the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) has been established. The aim of the funding program is to identify common research interests between the Helmholtz Centers and Russia's central scientific institutions. One focus is the promotion of young scientists in both countries. The HZDR is involved with research projects at the Institute of Fluid Dynamics and the Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory - the Russian partners come from Perm and Moscow as well as Chelyabinsk.
