HZB Events

The festive launch of the Catalysis Laboratory CatLab will take place on 21st June 2021 from 11 am to 1 pm (CEST).

The event will take place in the lecture hall of HZB-Adlershof and you can follow the live-stream online.

The event will be held in German with an English translation.


A whole range of technologies  need to be developed and optimised on the way to the sustainable production and use of green hydrogen. Most of these technologies have one thing in common: they require the right catalysts.

The heart of CatLab: Developing novel and tailor-made catalysts.

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and the two Max Planck Institutes, Fritz Haber Institute and Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion are pooling their competences to establish the Catalysis Laboratory CatLab together with academic and industrial partners.

CatLab is funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) in the framework of the National Hydrogen Strategy.

Girls'Day - Mädchen-Zukunftstag: Dieses Jahr wird das Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin digitale Workshops (je 90 Minuten) zum Girls’Day anbieten. In diesen lernen die Mädchen die Arbeitswelt von Wissenschaftlerinnen,

Dear PV-Scientists,

Photovoltaics (PV) is rapidly becoming one of the most important energy sources for a clean and widespread energy supply. In 2019 alone, 120GWp of PV capacity was installed globally. Every country has now realized that PV is not only the best solution ecologically, but also increasingly economically, with an average levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) End 2020 IEA declared PV the cheapest energy source ever. And we are only at the beginning of PV´s success story. In order to reach 50-80TW by 2050, further improvements in module efficiencies and reductions in the Balance of System (BOS) costs are key areas that require ongoing focus. Bifacial tandem technologies will play an important role in the coming 5-10 years and it is therefore high time to connect R&D and industry players from this emerging area to discuss standards, technology, and markets.

So, we are proud to announce:

tandemPV2021 workshop on 13th-16th April 2021 - Online

The goal of this workshop is not only to review existing technologies on the market for tandem PV, but also to set standards, identify further market potential, and improve bankability prospects. We hope to see you at the workshop in Berlin!

Die Energiewende braucht Photovoltaik, und Photovoltaik braucht Fläche. Dabei gibt es große Flächen, die bislang kaum genutzt werden: So lassen sich Solarzellen in die Hülle von Gebäuden und Fahrzeugen integrieren, oder in Verkehrswege, über Ackerland und gefluteten Tagebauen installieren. Am Mittwoch, den 28. April 2021, stellen Experten der HZB-Beratungsstelle BAIP Am Mittwoch, den 28. April 2021, stellen Experten der HZB-Beratungsstelle BAIP und weiteren Forschungseinrichtungen diese Optionen vor. Die Veranstaltung findet im Rahmen der Berliner Energietage statt, die Teilnahme ist nach Anmeldung kostenfrei.

Welcome to the HZB Photon School 2021, to be held online from March 22nd - 26th, 2021. Online practical training sessions will take place from March 29th – April 1st , 2021(*).
(*)  This is contingent on BESSY II is operating at a level that allows HZB employees access.

Deadline for application is January 15th, 2021, and acceptance for participation will be communicated by January 30th, 2021.

About the school and participation:
The program is aimed primarily at master students and other early stage researchers in physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, and life or environmental sciences. Students will be introduced to advanced synchrotron- and laboratory-based photon science methods that probe the physical, chemical, and electronic structures of materials as well as the function and dynamics of complex material systems.

SCIENTÍFika is a new series of scientific seminars organised by the User Office at MAX IV (Sweden). It takes place every Monday: 30 minutes of presentation followed by 15 minutes of discussion, chaired by MAX IV staff.
The next seminar Oliver Rader (Department Spin and Topology in Quantum Materials, HZB) will speak about "Developing materials for the quantum anomalous Hall effect: From extrinsic to intrinsic magnetic topological insulators."

Personnel und Social Matters

This panel discussion (in German) is organised by the University Passau.

What are the opportunities and challenges for diversity processes at academic institutions? Which diversity measures are particularly helpful and where is the greatest potential for change? We will discuss these and other questions with internal and external guests.
Among the guests is Dr Jennifer Schevardo, Head

Event Suggestion

Die Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft lädt Sie herzlich zu einem Symposium zur Vorstellung der Helmholtz-Roadmap der Forschungsinfrastrukturen ein. 

Erstklassige Forschung braucht einzigartige Infrastrukturen. Sie helfen, die Grenzen des Wissens zu verschieben und wissenschaftliche Fortschritte zu erzielen. Deshalb entwickelt, baut und betreibt Helmholtz große Forschungsanlagen

So wie wir unser Forschungsportfolio laufend erweitern, ändert sich auch der Bedarf an Großgeräten und modernen Forschungsanlagen. Deshalb will Helmholtz in neue Forschungsinfrastrukturen investieren – und damit in die Zukunft. Im Dialog mit wissenschaftlichen Partnern und Anwendern entwickeln wir unsere Pläne für den Bau und Betrieb künftiger Anlagen und Großgeräte in unseren sechs Forschungsbereichen weiter. Diese „Helmholtz-Roadmap“ möchten wir in einem Symposium diskutieren.

On 12 February 2021 there will be from 12 – 18 an online workshop for Helmholtz members which will also be open for guests. An overview of the diverse research activities on quantum technologies in the Helmholtz Association will be given. The fields quantum materials, sensing/metrology, quantum computing, quantum simulation, quantum communiction will be covered and the challenges for further

In the current pandemic situation we see more than ever the key role of science in providing solutions to the challenges we face as a society. And it is clear, that scientific discovery needs diverse perspectives in order to achieve innovative results at the highest level. Appropriate consideration of women or members of underrepresented
