The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht in social media


The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is a member of the largest German scientific organisation, the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres (HGF), and is a substantial contributor to illuminating the immense and pressing questions facing society, science and commerce.

The HZG’s focus lies in the fields of materials and coastal research and we publish content through a wide variety of channels, including on various social networking platforms.

Results and Experiences

We convey glimpses into our research centre from the most varying points of view. You can:

  • discover new scientific publications
  • accompany us on fascinating measurement campaigns
  • get a behind the scenes look at the campus
  • follow our contributions by listening to radio reports and watching television programmes and
  • participate in exciting events.

We also show you that behind much of the research and science there's always a "mere" human: that is, our approximately one thousand employees who work at our locations in Geesthacht and Teltow.

We look forward to communicating with you directly. Write to us! Participate in discussions! Ask us questions! We invite you to experience our research.
