JARA – Jülich Aachen Research Alliance

Focusing Expertise - Shaping the Future
In the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA), RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich pool their outstanding expertise in six research sections. These common efforts open up

new research opportunities and facilitate projects that would not be attainable for either of the partners on their own. Furthermore, their attention is always focused on the grand challenges facing society.

Scientists from RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich can apply for computing time on the JARA Partition from July 08, 2019 until August 05, 2019, 5pm CEST (strict deadline) for the next computing time period (November 01, 2019 - October 31, 2020).

The Institute of Nuclear Physics at Forschungszentrum Jülich is involved in the STRONG-2020 project.
