Energy is our matter – in the future as well: The Lise-Meitner Campus is preparing itself for new tasks in energy materials research


The remaining months until the final shutdown of the research reactor BER II are numbered. The HZB supervisory board decided in June 2013 that operation of the facility, and thus neutron research, would be discontinued by the end of 2019. Since this time the site has been in a state of radical change – and is preparing for new tasks. Considerable investments are being made in this regard: the Wannsee campus is currently being expanded into one of the most modern sites worldwide for energy and materials research.

We would like to introduce to you the most important projects for Wannsee campus.
