Key Technologies for Tomorrow
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.
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.
potential for meeting the objective of "key technologies for tomorrow"
lies in 4,600 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.
researchers who cooperate across the borders of institutes, research
centres and even countries are Jülich's greatest strength. In order to
allow them to collaborate with the best partners throughout the world,
Jülich participates in strategic alliances both in Germany and abroad.
The young scientists, students, and PhD candidates make an especially
vital contribution to the intellectually stimulating environment and
energy at the campus. Jülich offers them a working environment with
state-of-the-art instruments and global contacts, as well as the
opportunity to do independent research early on in their careers.
Jülich is proud of the tools it provides for its researchers to do
their work: simulation with supercomputers, research with neutrons,
imaging techniques for medicine, nanotechnology tools–these modern
instruments allow science to break through to new horizons of knowledge.
This infrastructure, valued and used by researchers throughout the
globe, characterizes Jülich the home of key technologies.
