Helmholtz Association supports the Award

July 21, 2012

The “empowering people. Award” welcomes the support of a further premium partner: The Helmholtz Association is a community of 18 scientific-technical and biological-medical research centres. The Association has been commissioned with pursuing basic research on behalf of the state, the economy and society. It strives to gain insights and knowledge so that it can help to preserve and improve the foundations of human life. It does this by identifying and working on the grand challenges faced by society, science and industry. Helmholtz Centres perform top-class research in strategic programmes in six core fields: Aeronautics, Space and Transport, Earth and Environment, Energy, Health, Key Technologies and Structure of Matter. The Helmholtz Association is a registered association. Its members are legally independent research centres. We look forward to collaborating with the Helmholtz Association.  More information: http://hemloltz.de/en/
