//Research Group Women in Research Centres from the Helmholtz Association

Arbeitskreis Frauen in Forschungszentren (AKFIFZ) der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft /

The Helmholtz Association is a community of 15 scientific-technical and biological-medical research centres, which aims to contribute to solving the grand challenges that society faces in the fields of energy, earth and environment, health, key technologies, structure of matter, and transport and space. Helmholtz believes that failure to tap into and to maximise the reserves of scientific potential in women is something that no research organisation aiming to achieve top-rate results can afford to do and therefore, the Research Group Women in Research Centres has been created.
