Welcome to the German Aerospace Center (DLR)

We conduct research and development activities in the fields of energy and transport, security and digitalisation and, of course, aeronautics and space.

We employ 11,000 people from all over the world and from a wide range of disciplines. Each and every one of us matters, for it is precisely this diversity that makes us strong and successful. As the research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany, we develop pioneering and sustainable solutions for the challenges facing humanity. After all, climate, mobility and technology are changing globally.

Join us in addressing these major tasks and help shape the future with your fascination for science and technology. Become part of our world of research!

DLR blog: Close-up

Our rockets fly into weightlessness, our spaceships and instruments explore space. In the air, we put our research aircraft and helicopters - Europe's largest civilian fleet - to work. Our employees test how the trains and vehicles of the future might look and drive. We test secure communications in space, in the air, on land and at sea. We have laboratories and large-scale research facilities the likes of which you don't often find. This blog "Close-up" opens the door a crack, is on the spot and close to our staff and institutes.

If you want to be even closer, you have to apply - and become part of our DLR world.
