German Research Institutions like Max-Planck, Helmholtz, DESY Hamburg and German Universities (Karlsruhe, München, Dresden, Köln, Münster, and Giessen) are important international partners for TRIUMF.
This new cooperation is another building block in an ever intensifying scientific and technological cooperation between Germany and Canada as a centerpiece of our bilateral cooperation.
