Forschungszentrum Jülich - Annual Report 2011

38 Forschungszentrum Jülich | Annual Report 2011 Forschungszentrum Jülich is not solely confined to the campus at Jülich, where it also provides the research community with access to unique instruments and facilities ranging from the JUGENE su- percomputer to state-of-the-art magnet- ic resonance imaging scanners. Scien- External Involvement and Platforms 1 JCNS is one of the institutes at Forschungszentrum Jül- ich. It operates neutron scattering instruments at the leading international neutron sources FRM II, ILL and SNS as part of a joint strategy. tists from Jülich also operate top-class research instruments at other locations in Germany and throughout the world. Jülich is also active in supporting early- career scientists and its project man- agement organization has two other branch offices in Germany. Forschungs- zentrum Jülich is represented: • in Aachen through the German Re- search School for Simulation Scienc- es (GRS) and the Jülich Aachen Re- search Alliance (JARA) (for more on GRS, see p. 52; for more on JARA, see p. 64). GRS GmbH is an independ- ent subsidiary of Forschungszentrum Jülich. RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich are equal shareholders; • at the research reactor in Garching near Munich through the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) 1 ; • at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge National Laborato- ry (ORNL), USA; • at the high-flux reactor at the Insti- tut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France. Forschungszentrum Jülich is a joint shareholder of ILL along with the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique (CEA, France), the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, France) and the Science and Technol- ogy Facilities Council (STFC, UK). Jül- ich’s share is 33%; it guarantees the neutron community in Germany par- ticipation in the operation of ILL; • through Project Management Jül- ich at locations in Jülich, Berlin, and Warnemünde near Rostock; • in Düsseldorf, where Technology Transfer runs the head office of the German biotechnology cluster BIO. NRW. As a member of the Helmholtz Associa- tion (HGF), Forschungszentrum Jülich is also represented internationally by their offices. The HGF has offices in Brussels, Moscow and Beijing.
