HZB is an employer that comprehensively strengthens and cares for the diversity of its employees. HZB publicly acknowledges this by signing the Diversity Charter. The charter is run by an association that works to anchor diversity in the working world.

By signing, HZB commits to the following goal:

"At HZB, we promote and value the diversity of our employees. Diversity creates new opportunities for cooperation and creativity for science. Tapping into these potentials and making them sustainable elements of the work culture is our goal."

Here you get to the HZB entry of the Diversity Charter.

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) was the first non-university research institution to undergo the Stifterverband's diversity audit "Shaping Diversity." The certification attests to the HZB's opportunity-oriented concepts and measures for diverse groups of people.

Diversity Charter

4500 companies and institutions have signed the Diversity Charter to date and are committed to an appreciative and prejudice-free working environment. The association thus represents 14.6 million employees in Germany. Here you find the "Diversity Charter in wording" document.

German Diversity Day 2022

Diversity Day will be held for the 10th time in Germany on May 31. HZB will also participate and show its colours! More about this in the near future.

    BESSY II: How pulsed charging enhances the service time of batteries
    An improved charging protocol might help lithium-ion batteries to last much longer. Charging with a high-frequency pulsed current reduces ageing effects, an international team demonstrated. The study was led by Philipp Adelhelm (HZB and Humboldt University) in collaboration with teams from the Technical University of Berlin and Aalborg University in Denmark. Experiments at the X-ray source BESSY II were particularly revealing.

    Fuel Cells: Oxidation processes of phosphoric acid revealed by tender X-rays
    The interactions between phosphoric acid and the platinum catalyst in high-temperature PEM fuel cells are more complex than previously assumed. Experiments at BESSY II with tender X-rays have decoded the multiple oxidation processes at the platinum-electrolyte interface. The results indicate that variations in humidity can influence some of these processes in order to increase the lifetime and efficiency of fuel cells.
