Digital End-of-Year Lecture 2020: New Thinking, New Opportunities - How Research Can Contribute to Structural Change

Structural change in the Rhineland is also the main topic of Forschungszentrum Jülich’s end-of-year lecture this year. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event this year will take place in a multi-faceted, digital format to be streamed on the Internet. The event, titled “New Thinking, New Opportunities: How Research Can Contribute to Structural Change.” will see Jülich scientists and their exciting projects working towards making the Rhineland an innovative region and model for others. They show how a region can proceed in the face of upheavals, so that people still enjoy living and working there in the future.

 JUWELS Supercomputer

Supercomputer Made in Jülich Setting New Benchmarks

Forschungszentrum Jülich’s upgraded supercomputer JUWELS is now capable of 85 petaflops. This is equivalent to 85 quadrillion computing operations per second or the computing power of more than 300,000 modern PCs. Thanks to its new booster module, JUWELS is able to massively expand the application limits of simulations and also offers the strongest platform in Europe for the use of artificial intelligence (AI).

Dr. Thompson

SHADOZ operation: Dr. Anne M. Thompson (NASA) explains international ozone measurement project

Dr. Anne Thompson is a senior scientist at the Goddard Space Flight Center, NASA. The climate researcher coordinates the network Southern Hemisphere Additional Ozonesondes (SHADOZ). Its aim is to provide long-term data on ozone in the atmosphere. We interviewed Dr. Thompson at Forschungszentrum Jülich, where members of the international network with stations in the southern hemisphere have come together to calibrate their instruments in November 2017.

Dr. Herman Smit epxplains how ozone sondes are calibrated at Jülich

Dr. Hermann Smit is a researcher at Forschungszentrum Jülich and Chair of the of the Jülich Ozone Sonde Intercomparison Experiment (JOSIE). Its aim is to implement a global quality assurance plan for ozone sondes in routine use today around the world to watch global changes of ozone in the atmosphere. In order to assess the performance of the different types of ozone sondes, the environmental simulation chamber at the Forschungszentrum Jülich is established as World Calibration Center for Ozone Sondes (WCCOS).

Wissenschaftler vor Gehirnsimulation am Rechner

The Human Brain Project

Scientists in the Human Brain Project aim at gaining a deeper understanding of the human brain. This will help not only to understand what makes us human, but also to lay the foundation for new therapies of brain related diseases. New insights might also be useful for new approaches in information technology. The film shows the contributions of researchers at Jülich to the European Human Brain Project.

Forschungszentrum Jülich: Finding Tomorrow Today

Will we ever be able to heal Alzheimer's? How will we meet our demand for energy in 50 years? How accurate are our climate predictions? How can we feed nine billion people? How will we build the computers of the future? Forschungszentrum Jülich deals with the challenges of our time. What we focus upon is decided upon by our most important client: by society.
