The Helmholtz Association is Germany's largest scientific research community. A total of 24,000 staff work in its 15 scientific-technical and biological-medical research centres. The Association's annual budget runs to more than €2 billion. The Federal and Länder authorities share around 70% of the total budget in a ratio of 90:10. The remaining 30% or so of the budget is acquired by the Helmholtz Centres in the form of contract funding.The Helmholtz Association has been commissioned with performing research which contributes substantially to answering the grand challenges of science, society and industry. Scientists at Helmholtz concentrate on researching the highly-complex systems which determine human life and the environment. For example, ensuring that society remains mobile and has a reliable energy supply, that future generations find an intact environment or that treatments are found for previously incurable diseases. The activities of the Helmholtz Association focus on securing the foundations of human life long-term and on creating the technological basis for a competitive economy. The potential with which the Association achieves these goals is made up of the outstanding scientists working at the research centres, a high-performance infrastructure and modern research management
