The Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA) – a nationally unique cooperation model between RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany – was established in 2007. The anniversary was celebrated on 3 July 2017 under the motto “Pooling together competencies, shaping the future”.
The cooperation started with three sections in 2007; since 2014, there have been six sections that combine “cores of excellence” from universities and large research institutions and offer outstanding opportunities for young scientists.
