Sustainable Campus

Forschungszentrum Jülich believes in sustainable development. We want to demonstrate our economic, ecological and social responsibility in our research and in our daily work. For us, a sustainable campus means research in the fields of energy and the environment, information and brain research with the aim of providing society with options for action facilitating sustainable development. At the same time, research at Jülich and the associated infrastructure should also use the available resources in an efficient manner.

To this end, Forschungszentrum Jülich has developed an urban development master plan. It comprises innovative approaches to energy efficiency and envisages a new structure for the campus that is designed to facilitate the exchange of scientific ideas between disciplines.
