The Helmholtz Institute Mainz pursues a global and unified approach to explore the structure, symmetry and stability of matter and antimatter.

Its cooperational structure unites two, usually seperate working worlds: the research and technology-driven world of the GSI Helmholtz Centre in Darmstadt with its large-scale infrastructure and the academic world of the physics research campus of the JGU Mainz: the best of both worlds!

HIM researchers at any stage thus profit from splendid research possibilities and a huge supporting network!

The HIM-Guest-Scientist-Program "VISIT-HIM" attracts guest scientsist from all over the world to Mainz.
