Are you a 10th to 13th grade student interested in mathematics and science? Then secure your free VIP ticket for a tour with exciting experiments and insights during the Long Night of Science! Meet female scientists who are passionate about making our world a better place! 17.06. , from 5.30 pm, Adlershof Research Campus.
Come along on a discovery tour and get to know interesting research labs that are otherwise closed. At the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin you will take part in a workshop and make earrings out of colourful LEDs with a soldering iron. You'll also learn why female mechatronics engineers should love one thing: tinkering and being creative.
The tour also takes you to Humboldt University and the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing. Learn about renewable energies and nano-optics or take a heat selfie. Join us and immerse yourself in the world of science for an evening!

Fractons as information storage: Not yet quite tangible, but close
A new quasiparticle with interesting properties has appeared in solid-state physics - but so far only in the theoretical modelling of solids with certain magnetic properties. An international team from HZB and Freie Universität Berlin has now shown that, contrary to expectations, quantum fluctuations do not make the quasiparticle appear more clearly, but rather blur its signature.
Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Grant for Dr. Jie Wei
In April, Dr. Jie Wei started his research work in the Helmholtz Young Investigator Group Nanoscale Operando CO2 Photo-Electrocatalysis at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and Fritz Haber Institute (FHI) of the Max Planck Society. Wei received one of the highly competitive Humboldt postdoctoral research fellowships and will pursue his two-year project under the guidance of the academic hosts Dr. Christopher Kley and Prof. Dr. Beatriz Roldan Cuenya.
Visit from the Czech Republic regarding Apprenticeship
End of March, a delegation from the Czech Republic visited HZB at the Wannsee campus. The programme included a visit to the apprentices’ workshop and exchanges regarding opportunities for apprenticeships and upskilling at HZB.
