DESY - Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron A Research Centre of the Helmholtz Association

Program Description: DESY is one of the world’s leading accelerator centers. Researchers use the large-scale facilities at DESY to explore the microcosm in all its variety – from the interactions of tiny elementary particles and the behavior of new types of nanomaterials to biomolecular processes that are essential to life. The facilities generate the world’s most intense X-ray light, accelerate particles to record energies and open completely new windows onto the universe. 
The research carried out at DESY is extremely diverse. The scientists who work here are looking for the tiniest building blocks of matter that make up our world, developing innovative high-tech materials and searching for new mechanisms of action for future medications. As one of Germany’s largest research centers, DESY carries out fundamental research that creates new knowledge and new conceptual approaches. This research is the basis on which the challenges of the future can be mastered: issues such as energy supply, climate protection and healthcare require long-term thinking, sustainable solutions and new technologies. DESY research is focused on Research at DESY focuses on three areas: Accelerators, photon science, particle and astroparticle physics. two DESY locations, Hamburg and Zeuthen near Berlin.

Year Started: 1959.

Organization Description: DESY is a research center of the Helmholtz Association. DESY has 2300 employees, including 650 scientists, and hosts imore than 3000 guest researchers from over 40 countries every year. 90% funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and 10% by the City of Hamburg and Federal State of Brandenburg.
