The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ was established in 1991 and has more than 1,000 employees in Leipzig, Halle/S. and Magdeburg.
They study the complex interactions between humans and the environment in cultivated and damaged landscapes. The scientists develop concepts and processes to help secure the natural foundations of human life for future generations.
The main locations are in Leipzig, Halle and Magdeburg.
The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research belongs to the Helmholtz Association. The Helmholtz Association contributes to solving major challenges facing society, science and the economy with top scientific achievements in six research areas: Energy, Earth and Environment, Health, Key Technologies, Structure of Matter, Transport and Space. With more than 32,000 employees in 18 research centres and an annual budget of approximately 3.4 billion euro, the Helmholtz Association is Germany’s largest scientific organisation.
