Helmholtz Association

 

The Helmholtz Association is dedicated to pursuing long-term research goals of government and society, and to maintaining and improving people’s basic living conditions. To this end, the Helmholtz Association conducts top-level research to identify and explore the major challenges facing society, science and the economy. Its work is divided into six strategic research programmes: Energy, Earth and Environment, Health, Key Technologies, Structure of Matter, and Aeronautics, Space and Transport.

The Helmholtz Association is made up of 18 research centres in the fields of the natural sciences, technology and medicine. One of these centres is DESY. With almost 34,000 employees and an annual budget of approximately €3.8 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany’s largest scientific organization. The Helmholtz Association conducts its work in the tradition of the great natural scientist Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894).

Promoting young researchers

Since 1 January 2013, the Helmholtz Association has been supporting the establishment of the PIER Helmholtz Graduate School with grants from its Initiative and Networking Fund. Promoting young researchers is a top priority for the Helmholtz Association. As part of the Research and Innovation pact, the Helmholtz Association is committed to expanding the scope and quality of training opportunities available to young researchers. The Helmholtz Graduate Schools are a valuable addition to the wide range of training programmes available within the Helmholtz Association. They offer optimal conditions for Ph.D. candidates to carry out their work within a wide scientific field. As internationally visible and integrative institutions, the graduate schools help to raise the profiles of participating doctoral students and assist them in networking with the universities.
