Press and Public Relations

It is the role of the staff unit Press and Public Relations to act as an important interface by compiling and communicating the knowledge and insights from environmental research for specific needs. It is our task to inform people about and report on the work of the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ both internally and externally.

We provide information aimed at specific target groups through press work, printed products, the internet/intranet with its multifaceted possibilities as well as scientific and popular science events.

Whether in the form of a press release, press conference or expert referrals – we mediate fascinating and socially important news, research results or topics to journalists from print media, radio, TV and online media. We help to find the right specialists and experts for your questions and investigations.
Press contact / Press releases

Insights into the research and personal points of views as well as interviews on current environmental research issues are provided five times a year in the UFZ Newsletter that provides important information about research topics at the UFZ for an external popular science audience.
UFZ Newsletter

With the UFZ’s web presence we are able to provide you with information about the UFZ and its research activities. It is our objective to be as user-friendly as possible while at the same time providing a wide range of cross media (print media, website, events, social media). Our media center conveys illustrative and informative insights into research at the UFZ – among others with audio podcasts and video/ image databases.
