Conducting research for a changing society: This is the mission of more than 6,000 employees working hand in hand at Forschungszentrum Jülich, including 600 visiting scientists from 59 countries. We want our research to have an impact. That’s why we conduct research into the fundamentals, technologies, and systems of a digitized society, a climate-friendly energy system, and a resource-efficient economy. At Jülich, natural, life and engineering sciences in the fields of information, energy, and the bioeconomy are closely linked with our specialist expertise in high-performance computing and benefit from the use of unique scientific infrastructure. We are one of the largest interdisciplinary research institutions in Europe and contribute to solving the grand societal challenges of our time as a member of the Helmholtz Association.
To meet the challenges of climate change and to develop a sustainable hydrogen economy, we are pooling our expertise. In this context, FZJ experts from the Institutes of Techno-Economic Systems Analysis (IEK-3), Photovoltaics (IEK-5), Systems Analysis and Technology Evaluation (IEK-STE) and Agrosphere (IBG-3) are working closely together. The project is coordinated by the Department of Corporate Development (UE-B).
