Role in SEAS-ERA: JULICH will contribute to WP1, WP2, and WP3, and will join the Atlantic regional network (WP6).
Forschungszentrum Jiilich pursues cutting-edge interdisciplinary research in the fields of health, energy and the environment, and also information technologies. With a staff of about 4400, Jiilich - a member of the Helmholtz Association - is one of the largest research centres in Europe.
As largely independent unit of Forschungszentrum Jiilich, the Project Management Organization Jiilich (PtJ) acts as one of Germany´s leading project management organisations. We are a partner for researchers, industry representatives and policy-makers. With our capacities in research and innovation management we help our contractors at federal and federal state level and in the European Commission realise their research targets. We thus serve as an important interface between our partners - to make Germany a competitive research and innovation location in a common European Research Area.
Today, our staff of around 340 persons acting in ten fields of work covers a broad thematic array. We are connected to a qualified scientific environment and we can rely on an efficient infrastructure. In addition to our offices in Jiilich we have subsidiary offices in Berlin and Rostock- Warnemiinde. To assure the quality of our services, Project Management Jiilich introduced a quality management system in 2004 that was certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001 in 2005.
