CESOC has been founded among three partners at three locations who count many years of scientific cooperation. They are already using their synergy potential in numerous joint projects. Also in personnel interdependencies.

The proven complementarity of their programmes and structures in research in conjunction with university teaching are an excellent basis for strategic alliances. The coordination as well as joint projects in cutting-edge research meet the criteria of internationally recognised excellence.

The following disciplines and institutions are involved:


University of Bonn

Mathematics, Computer Science,
Geodesy, Meteorology, Geophysics, Geography

Forschungszentrum Jülich

Computer Science, Atmospheric Science,
Bio & Geoscience

Institute of Advanced Simulation (IAS)

Data Analytics & Machine Learning (IAS-8)
