Forschungszentrum Jülich

Conducting research for a changing society: This is the mission of more than 7,000 employees working hand in hand at Forschungszentrum Jülich, including 900 visiting scientists from 75 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 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.


Jülich scientists focusing on the research priority of information investigate how information is processed in biological and technical systems. To this end, research at Jülich combines three areas: simulation and data science using high-performance computing (HPC), brain research, and research into bioelectronics- and nanoelectronics-based information technologies of the future.


Jülich research is aimed towards an energy system based on renewable energy sources and seeks to help mitigate the effects of climate change. At Jülich, multidisciplinary research is conducted into the production, conversion, and storage of energy, as well as energy transport and the reconversion of energy on the consumer side. The spectrum of research covers the entire value chain – from the fundamentals right up to the energy system level. It also covers the interaction between energy systems, air quality, and the climate.


Research on the bioeconomy is aimed at the transition from a crude oil-based to a bio-based economy that uses renewable resources efficiently and sustainably. We investigate new value-added processes on the basis of plant raw materials that can be used in agriculture, water management, chemistry, and pharmacy.

Structural change in the Rhineland

The Rhineland region is undergoing radical change, moving away from lignite towards sustainable value chains. Forschungszentrum Jülich is playing an active role in shaping this structural change, helping the local economy to tap innovative fields, draw new cooperation partners into the region, and create new jobs. Our aim is for the region to become a model of pioneering economic activity.
