Forschungszentrum Jülich works across topics and disciplines and investigates the relationships between the research areas.
Increasing digitalisation requires and enables innovations in high-performance computing, scientific simulation and big data as well as future technologies such as quantum computing and neuromorphic computing. The coding of information in molecular biology structures such as proteins or neuronal information processing in the human brain are also investigated by Jülich scientists. Understanding the complex processes in the brain is the prerequisite for better diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases.
The aim of the energy transition is a secure, affordable and environmentally friendly energy supply. Research focuses on renewable energies, combined with questions of transformation and storage as well as the interactions of the energy system with the atmosphere and the climate. This requires a systemic linking of the value-added chains, for example from power generation using photovoltaics to storage and reconversion.
