About Impact and Change

The world of science has never been as interconnected and diverse as it is today. Diversity is the engine that drives science to peak performance. This blog not only provides an insight into science “made in Jülich”, but also into individual career paths and the personal experiences of our researchers. 

We want to share stories behind great innovations, brilliant innovators, and aspiring entrepreneurs at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

This blog wants to detail our quest for creating an inclusive and equitable work environment where diversity is seen as a strength and individuals have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Here, international scientists will find a space to talk about their experiences working in Germany. Further, you will find tips and news about funding opportunities and scholarships that can pave your way to an experience abroad.
