How will we live longer in future while remaining healthy as we age? How will we ensure our energy supply and protect the environment at the same time? What does our future as a knowledge society look like? In order to answer these pressing questions, society needs solutions from research–solutions based on completely new ways of thinking that can only be achieved with cutting-edge research tools.
Forschungszentrum Jülich is concerned with these kinds of key technologies, whose benefits are not restricted to the specific needs of isolated disciplines, but instead open new doors for research as a whole. Jülich, one of Europe's largest interdisciplinary research centres works with the best partners in science and industry to develop and build these key technologies, to use them for their own research, and make them available to science.
Our potential for meeting the objective of "key technologies for tomorrow" lies in 5,000 employees who work together in an interdisciplinary manner, over 200 cooperation partners in Germany and abroad, a unique infrastructure, and our special expertise in physics, materials science, nanotechnology, and information technology. We harness this potential to generate new solutions for the areas of health, energy and environment, and information.
