On 1 September, HZB welcomed 15 new employees who are starting an apprenticeship, a dual study programme or a voluntary year at HZB. At an introductory event at the Wannsee site, HZB's Administrative Director Thomas Frederking welcomed the new employees and wished them a good start at the research centre.

HZB has many years of experience and success in trainings and dual studies. The young people are supervised at the centre by highly motivated trainers. The HZB offers a very exciting environment with an international flair and many opportunities for personal development, Thomas Frederking emphasised during his welcoming speech.   

We wish the new employees a good start and much success. Welcome to HZB! It's great to have you here.

The young people are in one of these training programmes:

  • Precision mechanic
  • Business Administrator for Office Management
  • Cook
  • IT Specialist (speciality System Integration)
  • Computer Science (BSc)
  • Design and Manufacture (B.Eng.)
  • Voluntary Ecological Year
  • Voluntary Social Year in Science, Technology and Sustainability

    Nanodiamonds can be activated as photocatalysts with sunlight
    Nanodiamond materials have potential as low-cost photocatalysts. But until now, such carbon nanoparticles required high-energy UV light to become active. The DIACAT consortium has therefore produced and analysed variations of nanodiamond materials. The work shows: If the surface of the nanoparticles is occupied by sufficient hydrogen atoms, even the weaker energy of blue sunlight is sufficient for excitation. Future photocatalysts based on nanodiamonds might be able to convert CO2 or N2 into hydrocarbons or ammonia with sunlight.
