On November 16th, 2021, PIER hosted a remote workshop on “Future joint research perspectives of DESY and Universität Hamburg in the context of Science City Hamburg Bahrenfeld (SCHB)”. 120 researchers from the fields of biology, chemistry, data science, medicine and physics came together to discuss possible links for joint research activities of scientists from DESY and Universität Hamburg (as well as further Hamburg research institutions).

Special emphasis was placed on possible new links between physics and those Universität Hamburg departments that will move (at least partially) to Bahrenfeld in the coming years, namely the departments of biology and chemistry. Another focus was on current joint research initiatives of DESY, UHH and further partners in the fields of data science, materials science and quantum technologies & quantum computing.

The workshop discussions made it clear that there is large potential for joint research activities of the two PIER partner institutions also in the future. As a follow-up to the event, PIER will organize dedicated half-day workshops in 2022 that will offer time for more in-depth discussions. Workshop topics will be:

  • Quantum technologies & quantum computing (organized by DESY, UHH and TUHH researchers as part of the World Quantum Day on April 14th, 2022)
  • Water research (June 27th, 2022)
  • Photonics, accelerators & particle physics (October 14th, 2022)
  • Materials (October 27th, 2022)
  • Data science (November 10th, 2022)
  • Structure, infection and beyond (November 24th, 2022)
