Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology


The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf is a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centrespursuing new insights that will allow us to maintain and improve all of our lives. That is why the HZDR conducts research in the fields of Energy, Health and Matter in Dresden and at four other locations. Our large-scale facilities are also available to external guests from around the world to help answer the decisive questions of our societies.

Establishing interdisciplinary research, focusing on the future, and thinking outside the box are all paramount to us. That is why we are working closely together with other research insitutions within the Helmholtz Network. We also cooperate with universities and non-university partners to form strategic partnerships like Dresden-concept.
