Helmholtz Association is with 31,000 employees in 17 scientific-technical and biological-medical research centres and an annual budget of approximately 3,3 billion euros, Germany’s largest scientific organisation. These centres have been commissioned with pursuing long-term research goals on behalf of the state and society. The Association strives to gain insights and knowledge so that it can help to preserve and improve the foundations of human life. It does this by identifying and working on the grand challenges faced by society, science and industry. Helmholtz Centres perform top-class research in strategic programmes in six core fields: Energy, Earth and Environment, Health, Key Technologies, Structure of Matter, Aeronautics, Space and Transport. With the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (Bremen) and from 2012 on the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research (Kiel) as well as Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (Hannover) different aspects important for marine biotechnology are covered.
