Quality management in top interdisciplinary research
Many decentralized QM systems at Forschungszentrum Jülich brought together by ConSense IMS
Malaria diagnosis with the smartphone, the development of tire material on the computer or a genetic additive that makes productive bacteria glow so that they can be detected more quickly - these are just three of many innovations from which the economy and society benefit. They were developed at the Forschungszentrum Jülich near Aachen. The Research Centre, whose shareholders are the Federal Republic of Germany and the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, has set itself the goal of developing comprehensive solutions for the major social challenges in the fields of energy and the environment, information and the brain. With its competencies in materials research and simulation as well as its expertise in physics, nanotechnology and information technology, the life sciences and brain research, it is creating the foundations for future key technologies. In the field of energy and the environment, scientists are working, among other things, on tapping new environmentally friendly energy sources and developing new approaches to storage technologies, energy efficiency and nuclear disposal. In the field of information and the brain, for example, the Centre operates supercomputers for scientific simulations.
Around 5,500 employees in the nine research institutes with 51 departments are committed to this. This makes Jülich one of the largest interdisciplinary research centres in Europe.
Whole success story is currently only available in German.
